   They've really done a fine job of it.... Glassing the hull must be the absolute WORST part of the whole deal. It is really downhill now!

   Now attention is going to finishing the interior. Here's the view in the main cabin (I think it is; maybe it's the stern!)

   The Queen bed with cabinets on each side.

  The very bow of the ship. So far there's no crash bulkhead or chain locker. I assume they'll be using a deck mounted self storing windlass. I'd likely install a bulkhead and use the very fwd part as a paint locker or something. Maybe not.

  A shower stall being built in place. One good reason to build your own boat is to get a spacious head! That's a rare thing in a production boat.....
