At the beginning of the week, the boat sits with 3 layers of clear epoxy in the bilge. Two more to come.

Drew removes the tape around the bilge after 5 fresh fresh coats of clear epoxy.
These are the deck stringers that Drew and I made. Two of them had to be scarfed together in order to get a 35 foot length.
Here are the full size mylars that we used to trace out the bulkheads on the custom Butternut Plywood.

The Last Shot of The Week. A warm visit from some Nantucketers to check on the MC-30's progress. Nat and Melissa Philbrick, Eric and Betsy Holch, Sandi Holland and not pictured here were Bill and Eileen Eddy.
