Assembling the Parts - Center and Stern

We begin to skin the center section.

To keep the long thin shallow hull from sliding sideways, we installed a centerboard trunk under the forward double berth.

Skinning is underway on the starboard side.

 (An earlier shot of the stern section.)

The stern section of the hull folds forward over the cabin when the boat is loaded into the 20' shipping container. Unfolded, it acts as a back porch to the main cabin and offers plenty of room for lounging and storage.

The bulkhead is comprised of two matching parts, one that stays with the stern and one that stays with the center section. They are bolted together when the boat is fully unfolded.

The two 9.9 horsepower outboards are located just forward of the bulkhead.
