Build Update from Australia

Postby Hooky on Thu May 19, 2022 7:29 am

G'day to all PocketShip enthusiasts, I thought I would share an update on my PocketShip build Down Under.
With the available stock from the initial purchase I was able to complete the centerboard case, centerboard, keel, bulkheads,
frames and cradle.
Then the East Coast of Australia was hit with a weather condition called "La Niña" which caused non stop torrential rain and
severe flooding.
This in conjunction with Covid resulted in import delays and transportation issues obtaining the remaining 6mm marine grade
But finally the stock arrived and a clear weather window allowed me to transport the last 11 sheets of plywood to my workshop.
So I have been busy creating lots of dust, check out my progress on the blog"

Cheers Terry
