Building Frame Off

April 30, 2015  Hours spent building to date:  1,021

Pretty mundane week so far after the excitement of the rollover.  It is really strange to walk into the shop in the morning and see a big boat and trailer sitting there, and somewhat daunting since there is so much left to do.

The building frame is at last off.  It seemed to take as much time to disassemble as assemble, but I suppose that was because I had to do most of the removal of some really heavy pieces from a ladder and scaffold.

Interior is looking good — no gaps anywhere, seems very tight.   I can walk just about everywhere, and I don’t feel any bending or hear a tell tail crack or groan.

In response to several comments, I think I am about halfway finished.  Somehow I had it in my head from a formula in WoodenBoat (displacement in pounds/3 = hours to build) that it would take about 2,000 hours to finish the Tardis and we hit exactly 1,000 while drinking American Ale after the turnover.

Taking a break for a 30th anniversary cruise down the Danube and some time in Budapest, then on to bonding.

Building frame removed.  Maybe I should quit now and run her as a big center console.
