I realize that it has been some time that I have updated this and there is allot to catch up on.
For most of the winter we have been working on Passing Cloud, a schooner built here in B.C by Brian Walker and is now used for sail training. There were many things to do for the Transport Canada upgrades. Watertight bulkheads, doors and hatches and engine air intakes that can be shut off. The trick with this upgrade is that the boat hast to keep the original look of the interior and exterior. We came up with several effective low impact solutions. Transport Canada has given us the Green light and the vessel can now continue operating.
Also we have been working on Reliance. This a 42" motorboat from San Diego. The project is to repair everything and make the boat look as new. We have been working on the boat for 9 months to this date. The result is stunning.
There have been so many other projects. Melbia is receiving a new cockpit and the Duen is getting a new hydraulic steering system.
