CATAMARAN BUILD - How We Work Through the COLD Winter (MJ Sailing - Ep 218)

Snowstorms are arriving in Maryland, but that won't stop us from working through the winter.

We're going to take a jump into the future in this video (current time, filmed just this week) to give you the details on how we continue to build inside the tent through the winter. If you remember those large propane heaters we have inside the tent which came in great use this past spring as we began bonding? They haven't been turned on once. But...we've found other ways to warm up areas inside the hulls to keep it warm enough to continue fiberglassing and have the resin fully cure.

But - before we can get into that - it is time for a refresher on the layout of our boat. Many of you don't know how our Max Cruise is laid out, or which each section of the hull is. So join me as I bring you through all the renders we have from Max Cruise to show you the entire layout. As an added bonus, there's also a few photos in there taken from this summer of hull #4!

Plus, we add more names to the Hull of Fame at the end. :)

Let us know if you have any questions, we can't wait to hear from you!

Much love from Annapolis!
Jessica, Matt & Georgie
