Boat designed: George Buehler. Started deck beams on December 1,2004. Keel and deck beams went to the boat shed December, 2006. I have been working on this project for about 10 years and have not lost interest in it. My progress continues. I lost two years due to the storm Sandy. My progress on the boat far exceeds the posts on this site.I am going to post pictures showing progress. Bottom line is building is better than blogging.

Starting the Boat Shed
As I mentioned in a previous post there was a delay in building the boat shed. Partly due to my work load in my business and also due to a n excavating contractor not showing up as promised. Once I had all the trees cleared I ran across an old friend Bob Bridger, who had just moved back to the area and he had a front end hoe. Bob is a local and was more than willing to do the required excavation and he even helped move the large old micro lam beams which Strober Lumber gave me as long as I paid the delivery charge. Although they were different sizes and dimensions they made a good foundation and partial wall onto which I will place the shed frames. Here Bobs hoisting one of the beams to the front wall area. As you can see the side foundations are complete and stand about 2’ high.
