- steering mechanics
- Hull-to-deck bonding. This needs to happen sooner rather than later, before the hull/deck joint access gets covered up from the inside.
- Chain plates - ideally this should be done at hull-deck bond time
- Lifeline stanchions - ideally this should be done at hull-deck bond time
- Bowsprit - again, ideally done at hull-deck bond time. This will require fabrication of bowsprit, and at this time I have no design for one.
- Finish rough-in. By that I mean the bits that must be glassed to the hull and any large covering panels and faces. As for bits to glass in, we are about 90% complete.
- Start finish-trim. I anticipate this will be started in certain areas of the boat by years end.
- Basic Mechanical - this will slowly happen throughout the year. Things like head plumbing, bilge pumps, thru-hulls, etc.
MaybeHere are some things that *might* get attention this year. Time and finances allowing.
- Install steering
- Design/fabricate/install stern pulpit
- Port lights
- Begin deck gelcoat repair
- Finalize any rig changes
- Design running rigging deck layout
- Design electrical system
- Begin mast rebuild
- Shop evolution - at some point it needs to shift from a "glass and resin shop" to a "woodworking shop" as finish work begins. This will require some new equipment like a (good) router table, planer and a jointer (if we cant get our old one back).
So there you go. No problem! Should be done with all of this in the first two weeks!
Happy New Year.
