Since bonding makes for very unexciting photography (epoxy, tape, more tape, more epoxy), I want to share some great pictures I just received from my friend Bob Scott. When Bob wasn’t pushing and tugging on the boat, he was taking stills, while Molly handled the video. I think those of the boat going onto the trailer give a much better picture of what the Tardis really looks like than the ones in the shop.
That big bow really has a West Coast look to it — very much like the Pacific Northwest salmon trollers, but in its present state also very reminiscent of a San Diego tuna clipper. The cabin house will bring the bow into proportion visually, but am I very satisfied even now in having that strong, purposeful structure between me and the waves. I am in the midst of a lot of carpentry up there right now. Upcoming pictures will demonstrate how Mark has made the bow bulletproof inside as well as outside.
