Look forward to plenty of photographs please- very useful for repairs (for those of us who acquired secondhand boats built by someone else) or have forgotten what's inside.

No problem. I had intended to take a lot more photos but got so involved I forgot<img src=icon_smile_clown.gif border=0 align=middle>
I am currently fairing the hull which doesnt make good photos, and am having a few days off the build. Spent one of them collecting my new Bermudan rig from Speedsails and am well impressed, of course I dont know if it works yet <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

Today 70466 ceased being a load of ply and became A MEASURED MIRROR 90 days after starting. She will be called "WEN" and will be on the water Saturday.
Would I do it again ? most definately BUT not in winter ! Heating the boat , epoxy and paint are all a pain!
