Progress Happening!!!!!

WOW!!!!!!  Things are really happening around the shop now.  As we close in on our end of June launch, more and more crews are coming on board.  Jeremy with Royale Yacht Finishing has come on board this week and will be with us with his crew for the next month.  Already this week, they have long board blocked the entire hull and patched/faired the needed areas.  Today they will be shooting primer, tomorrow blocking again, and on Friday afternoon the 1st show coat of ICE BLUE with be painted on the hull. 

On the construction side, nearly all of the bridge components are installed.  Including seating, console, live well/ tuna tubes, ice maker cabinets, tackle cabinet, and helm step.  The remainder of interior cabinets will be here Monday and installation next week.  Just in time for Cathy with Crystal Coast Interiors to take patterns for soft goods.  Also, next week we will be beginning with the teak toe rail, cock pit, coaming, and cover boards. 

This update wouldn't be complete with out mentioning we are officially on board as the boat builder and captains meeting party sponsors for the Barta Boys and Girls Club Billfish Tournament located in Beaufort, NC on July 15-18, 2009.  Check out there link and help us support this great cause and event.  This will be the coming out party for the Island Style Custom Yachts, Q42 Express.  As she will be located front and center at the Beaufort Waterfront for all to see and tour.  And with a little luck, we will even get a little fish slim on her.

So, if you are in the area, stop on by the shop and check things out.  Because it is happening fast and it is truely amazing to see it come together.  Check out the updated photos under the YACHT page as well.
