Great Weekend To Be At Ocean Isle

With 80 degree days and light winds this weekend, it is going to be hard to keep these guys going here at Ocean Isle Beach.  Talks of large trout at the jetties, flounder showing up in Tubbs Inlet, and great reports from the guys on the break, keep coming thru the shop and getting the guys attention.  But we are now on a tight timeline for completion and every second is ticking for us.  With a completion date of mid June, there won't be much rest for the weary.

Monday started another 9 day stretch and since the last update things have progressed nicely.  The cockpit, bridge floor, and foredeck have all been permately installed and glassed.  The shower is set along with the berth cedar lined teak cabinet with high gloss finish.  Man that thing is beautiful and I can't wait to see the rest of the cabinets installed week after next.  The mechanical and electrical systems continue, as we have brought on Kenny Wells, another one of the well known experiences from Wanchese.  Air boxes are in and glassed and 85% of the engine room hook up is complete, with custom battery boxes, recessed switches, and all.  Bridge wings and windscreen are almost completely installed and I will take some pictures at the beginning of next week to update.  This thing looks sleek and mean, and already looks like she's running out the building.  The custom valving for the tuna tubes and livewells are being installed, with easy access and maximum managebility in mind.  All fuel lines, racors, and oil exchange lines have been run and connected.  Next week the power steering system will be complete.

This weekend Tim Daly with Carolina Custom Towers will be here taking measurements and starting on the tower and tops.  Also, we have a fairing crew coming this weekend to beginning on the outside of the hull while we finish up the top side.  They will then move right on up top.  With the time crunch we are just in need of more professional, experienced hands.

So if you get back from fishing early and want to see what it takes to build a true custom sportfishing yacht, stop on by the shop.  We will be there early and late, all weekend long.  Bring the kids also, there's nothing quite like seeing a kids eyes light up when they walk in the shop and see this huge boat towering over them.

Have a great weekend and keep them lines tight!!!!!!!!!!!
