    It will be very interesting to compare what will be quite a different boat from FanShi.

    An exciting stage to be at. Wonderful. I think this is an outstanding cruising boat design.

    I laminated the front part of the lower chinelogs and all bulkheads to the backbone. Yesterday I laminated the front part of the lower chinelogs to the aft part and STN 0 to the backbone. My plan for today is to glue the lower chinelogs in place which will be a small milestone because all bulkheads will be in their definite positions.

    Yes, I really can't complain about the workshop!

    You mean because of the front part of the backbone? The way I build the backbone and STN 2 differs from the plans and I couldn't remember in detail what I had planed and I wanted to make sure it will work the way I prebuilt them over the winter.

    Now they are mostly set up. I already really like that boat! <3

    You've got a nice workshop there!  Good to see progress.  Just out of curiosity, why did you not set up all the bulkheads first?

    I haven't had time to write an blog article yet, but here's a teaser:

Even if it was a little bit of planning for the next step, or a small amount of sanding, or other finishing work.

    That's also my approach and I'm quite satisfied how this works out at the moment.

    I will probably build the sail last. Skegs, backbone, topside panels, keel, rudder, mast, tiller, boat hook :) ... All fine workshop projects. I won't be bored this winter or the next.
    The more little jobs you can knock off the easier will be the finishing stages of the project. When I was building my recently launched catamaran I tried to do something on the boat every single day. Sometimes this might have meant just some little part of the boat during the afternoon when I got home from work. Even if it was a little bit of planning for the next step, or a small amount of sanding, or other finishing work. By doing a little bit every day it allowed me to make better progress on the big jobs on those dedicated boat building days. So being able to knock off little jobs during the winter at least keeps you progressing towards the eventual completion of the project.
