Tank Getting Close

Here is a shot of the finished bottom of the tank. the sun was wrong for the top. It should be ready to glue on top this afternoon. The inspection ports are glassed in.
The deck is almost ready for the primer. Notice the bamboo posts. It is scrap wood here. It is laying all around.

The shower walls are also ready for the primer. The drain pan didn't drain well, so today they made a false bottom that angles over to the drain pipe.

The aft cabin celing, like the rest looks a little shabby with out the covering. I am looking at making gel-coat fiberglass sheets to snap in.
Looking starboard in the galley floor. Looks like a long ways to go.

  2. If you are thinking of the collage in Majuro it is a small town 50,000 people. 1 theater, 2 grocery stores. lots of poor people.
    The outer islands are VERY remote. the 2 with high schools are a little better but you would walk every where, eat rice and fish, no phone, electricity, refrigeration or even running water.
