Eider: Dodger & Cushions

March 10, 2012. It’s Saturday, and I have not worked on “Vanessa” for days. I’ve come down with something very nasty. Lord willing I’ll be over this in the next few days!

Anyway I have 10 new photos. At this point I have logged 376.5 single man hours.

The dodger guy came and installed the s.s. bows and fittings. He says he should have it complete by the middle of next week.

The cushion lady came by yesterday and installed the cabin cushions and the hall way filler board. This board has two uses. One to fill the center hall way while sleeping and second to set up like shown in the photo to act as the backing for the port seating.

All that is left of the construction is shaping the mast, boom, gaff and bow sprit. That should take a day maybe two. Then my friend Kirk Gresham will come down from Port Townsend and help rig her.

    She is looking beautiful! Congratulations on a very nice boat. I just found your site and have been looking around for by second boat project. Still have to finish my Sandpiper though. The Eider design is a perfect size and is ranked number one of my favorite next projects, especially now I see how nice she is from your blog.
    I will be checking your site regularly for updates.
    (Hope you will feel better soon.)
