I was making excellent progress on the MC 16.5 and set a launch date of Father's Day, 2010. I thought I was going to make it until my wife told me it was next week. I still have 1-2 more coats of paint to apply to the hull and then varnish the deck and add all the rigging. It could probably use another epoxy coat in the cockpit and then either varnish or polyurethane or paint on top of that. In addition, I have to visit a client in Ft Lauderdale for two days next week, so I ain't gonna make it. I could put her into the water to see if it is a UBoat or a kayak, but I would have to screw in the hatch straps before I varnish and I don't want to do that. So, I guess I'll push it back a week.
