Major Bulkhead Prep

Kit-E74: Major Bulkhead Prep!

We got back to the boat yard for some work on the major bulkheads while the sun was shining. We finished up working on the two biggest bulkheads, the final ones before we can put them all into the hulls. 

Parallel Hybrid Combo Propulsion System

Kit-E73: Daggerboards (P2) and Comments

We continue work on our daggerboards as the next big Atmospheric River hits our neck of the woods. But, when the skies clear, we head to the lot to answer a bunch of viewer comments and questions. 

Making our Daggerboards: Part 1

Kit-E72: Making our Daggerboards: Part 1

It's raining all week, so we moved to our garage to build the two daggerboards for S/V Lynx. Captain Blood, Admiral Marianne, and our XO, Brian, will need these for our catamaran as we sail this boat around the world, 

Applying Coppercoat Antifoul

Kit-E71: Applying Coppercoat Antifoul

We got a nice few days of sunshine, so we got our Coppercoat Antifoul on the first hull! So, come join us as we roll out the antifoul on S/V Lynx, our 50' performance/cruising, DIY, catamaran from Schionning Designs. 

Phase One Build Plan

Kit-E70: Cradles and Rain Catchment Design

We want to flip the two canoes soon so we had to do some more work on the cradles that will hold them. But a big storm got in the way of our Coppercoat plans, so we spent time designing a new rain catchment system. 

Barrier Coat Complete

Kit-E69: Barrier Coat Complete

This week, we finish the barrier coat by applying Total Boat to the port canoe. We also spend some time going over the entire Solitaire Catamaran line, from Schionning Designs.

Hulls Finished

Kit-E68: Hulls Finished & Goiot Parts Order

We finally finished up the fairing and sanding of the second hull this week, we're sure glad that is finally done.  We also finalized some details on our Goiot order of boat parts coming from France and go over that in this video.

Back to Boat Building

Kit-E67: Back to Boat Building

It's 2024! And time to get back to Boat Building, so come join Captain Blood, Admiral Marianne, and our XO, Brian, as we continue marching forward, through thick and thin, as we build our 50' Performance/Cruising Cat.
