post-13713-0-30177900-1346339459_thumb.jpg058; I'm having a boat builder do this for me as I'm gone more than home right now (unfortunately). None of this wood was pre-treated with epoxy so it will be an on going prospect to stay head of the rot until I get everything sealed up.

post-13713-0-20569500-1346339930_thumb.jpg434_n1: It's starting to look like a boat.

post-13713-0-49410300-1346340023_thumb.jpg267_n1; Deck stringers are finished and forward deck is getting laid.

post-13713-0-78240400-1346341626_thumb.jpg The Crew is taking a break but it's coming together, problem is I didn't order a fishing boat so now the extra time and cost to undo their error. But thats life in the PI.

 

Well there are too many people here in the net right now eating up band width on skype so maybe I can finish this tomorrow LOL.

If I don't find the marine engine I want then I will Marinize a V10 and see where it goes from there... I have a V8 But by the time I change the pump and add twin turbos I might just as well go up to a V10... I will need the horse power because I'm adding 100 sheets of 3/8 TuffPly but it will be a strong, fast boat when thats completed...

post-13713-0-86336700-1361711938_thumb.jpg   The following are rebuilding the bow we replaced about 70% of the ribs in the entire hull... Added more stringers and replaces several.... widened the deck... added a better angle to the deflector... and built everything so it can withstand the force generated when the bow cuts into a big wave or swell.

Sweet boat! If you do not already have a name for her, we should have a contest to help you chose one.

MBCA stands for Motor Banca... Hannah Glitz is my oldest Daughter so I named it after her. Eventually I would like to build four more to name after the rest of my Daughters, time will tell on that one. She isn't finished yet I hope to have her in the water on Sea Trials by the end of May or early June, "Good Lord Willing and the Creek Don't Rise" After she is operational it will be my test bed for some inovative ideas that rattle around inside my old brain. I've decided on a V12 for power so I should have plenty for what ever occation or surprise may arrise. Thank you for the complement on the boat Guys.
