And finally, all assembled and ready to run... Lookit that, it hides my caulking mess!
The next success is visible in the background of the last pic. It was an unscheduled event, but the mast step wasn't very well attached to the boat. Emergency surgery included redrilling the holes, back filling with epoxy, and then setting the screws in the holes so the epoxy would harden onto them.
Once the epoxy hardened, I basically had holes tapped exactly to the screw size. A bunch more caulk (its actually 3m 4200, but I'm afraid folks won't know/care about that) and the mast step was very firmly held in place. Yay!!
Now that the electrical, vent and most of the woodwork are complete, I just have to get the motor back from the shop and we are set to go, well almost set. Still have to scrub down the hull, put on our registration numbers, and make the rigging changes, but that should all be able to be done in a couple of days. I must go hound the folks working on the engine now.
