We have one more video coming next week which will feature a few of the Dutch boat builders we went to visit during our time in Amsterdam, but we figured this week you'd like to be updated on what we're doing for our own boat.

Well, now that Matt has glassed in our molds for the flush hatches, we can finally add in the last bulkhead in the port hull. This intersects the middle of the aft berth, and also lines up close to where the inner hull wall (or back of the cockpit storage) will be.

While Matt is getting that bonded into place, as well as a shelf, which will hide some of our conduit, I continue to fair out spaces in the starboard hull, closer to the master berth. But, I'm quickly taken away from that job after Matt has finished his part.

Because it is usually my duty to do the finishing work (I have the patience for it), I'm sent to put the last layer of glass on bulkhead 7, to wrap in the unidirectional and give the last bit of strength. And even though it's been 4 months since I've last glassed anything, I think I did a pretty good job.

Oh, and if you keep your eye out, you'll catch a glimpse of Joyce and Louisa as they prepare for a Friendsgiving dinner. ;)

We hope you enjoy!
