As spring approaches and the ground finally begins to thaw, the people of the boating world start to breathe a collective sigh of relief. After one of the worst winters in the history of the state, with many areas recording record snowfall, the sounds of spring are a welcome sign.
Here at our yard, spring projects have already begun. With the influx of warm weather our crew has started to move outside to work, while things are still progressing on our major indoor winter projects.
On board Requiescere, the Hinckley Bermuda 40: after engine mount modifications the new engine has been dropped into place. In the galley and head the new Formica countertops are underway and nearly complete.
The owner also wanted his engine gauges laid out in the same place as the old gauges. This involved splitting the factory panel into two seperate pieces and installing them.
On Board Maine Lady, the primer is all sprayed and the final fairing is underway. The owners will be in this week to finalize the nonskid colors and layout.
Work continues to roll along on Pemetic, the cabin house has the first build up coats of varnish applied. The two new fuel tanks are having the final fittings and gauges installed, and the new systems and wiring is well underway. All the necessary holes have been drilled throughout the boat for the various fittings and fills!
The new electrical panel has been laid out and is just about ready to install in the boat for good. Things are coming together nicely onboard and more updates will follow!
