It’s not that things have not been moving along with Flirt, it’s more along the lines that what I have been doing is not very glamorous. I can’t post up picture after picture of me applying Carbonfibre and then sanding down the edges.. because it all I have done for the past week or so. Once get another 5 yards in, I can complete the inside of the hull back to the mast.
What does prompt this post was something I got in the mail today from Port Townsend Foundry. My custom bronze bow roller. It took a few months to cast and form everything, but it is truly a work of art in both design and function. Pete and Kathy are some of the nicest people to deal with and I look forwards to getting a couple of their opening Portholes later this year.
Now all I need is to finish the foredeck so I can form up the toe rails and mount it up. Flirt is starting to come back together, and it is exciting!
