Nor’wester is in the sling and on her way to the launch area. These past 3 weeks have been a blur. The first 90% of a build takes less than the last 10%. The details take the time. Note the breast plate. We hope this will become a signature item on the boat.Here Nor’wester is being lowered into the water.
And she floats…..and on her lines, too. Now the final stages will be completed. There is flooring, wallpaper, and some outside fairing that needs to be done; all by Sunday (that’s when we leave for the Seattle Boats Afloat Show). The electronics are nearly complete, but if you look closely at the radar arch, you will only see one radar, no TV dome, antennas and some dangling wires. These will be done in the next few days.
As things get completed, I will try and post pictures of the interior. Today there were about 15 people inside the boat working and I didn’t want to disturb them or get in the way. Plan to come to Seattle for the Boats Afloat Show running from September 12th through the 16th.
