We’re building our boat with vinyl ester resin – and they’re OUT nationwide!!

This week’s video is a smattering of a few different things, trying to catch up from when we were preparing the Pacemaker to launch (late June) to starting work on the floors of the catamaran (early July).

We also give away the Viking, which was a sad day, but we show you the transformation of when we first stepped foot on her last fall, to what she looks like when we hand her over.

Plus, we run into the issue that we can not get our hands on vinyl ester resin, so we need to find other projects to keep us busy, which do not involve it. Luckily, we can do the floors in a polyester resin instead. This will be a long process that *should* keep us busy for a few weeks, and Matt explains the technical side of how all floors will be water tight spaces.

(*Painting Pacemaker – filmed on June 14
*Matt leveling floors – filmed on June 22
*Pacemaker splash date – June 27
*Handover of Viking – July 02
*Arrival of 2nd container – July 13)

We hope you enjoy!!

Much love from Annapolis!
