This is truly sad. George will be missed.

March 2, 2018
To all concerned…
It saddens me to announce the sudden death of George Buehler.
George died February 28, 2018 at age 69 of complications following an aortic aneurism and emergency surgery. 
George would be honored that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to WAIF at https://waifanimals.org
Whidbey Animals' Improvement Foundation is a non-profit organization which was formed in 1990 in an effort to help Whidbey Island's homeless companion animals.
Another important organization is Old Dog Haven at 
His business George Buehler Yacht Designs at this time will be closed. Any future information of his memorial service or future business details will be provided at a later date.
George is survived by his wife Gail Buehler.

At this time I would like to point out, that I have been working on this project for about 10 years. I  have not lost interest in it and I am continuing to work on it. I lost two years due to Sandy, the major storm the Northeast had 5 years ago, at which time I may have worked on the boat maybe 10 days total. I have not kept up with this Blog and my progress on the boat far exceeds the posts on this site.  At this point I am going to post some pictures showing progress and at some time I will go back and explain what I did. Bottom line is my time is better spent on the building of the boat at this point. I would love to get into detail of every aspect of the construction of this boat, however it seems that life just gets in the way.  I will however attempt to keep up on construction pictures and answer any questions or comments the viewers may have. Thanks for following. Joe
Built  two water tanks with about 160 total gallon capacity. Used plywood with baffles. Then clothed the corners and coated inside and out with epoxy. 

Tank shape to fit with the boat design.

Will set on top of keel an conform to the bottom of the hull.
