Looking good, you have gotten a lot accomplished!
Remember, the ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic was built by professionals.
Started building Paula J the 2nd Week of June 2015, finished her the second week of July 2016.

Looks great!  Nice seats and galley ...what type of seat and stove/oven did you end up with?

It's nice on those 28+ footers how much pilot house AND cockpit you get... lots of room.

I like your shed too ... was it expensive to build?

Twisted1, how much taller did you make the cuddy?   Is it just taller at the bow?   Nice looking boat!

Sorry for not getting back on here for some time now. Todd j, we added 1 1/2 inches to the height of the main cabin and kept the cuddy the same as what was called out in the drawings. I'm 6'4" so I needed just a little more head room.

Brian we have about 9 1/2' of cabin from bulkhead to bulkhead. the Cockpit is about 7 1/2'

We are much further along than the last pics I posted. We have windows, wippers,  Simrad with radar ect... near finished and will be looking for a motor at the boat show this year.

Wow!  The boat's looking great and awesome pix!  You'll enjoy having the carpet-like (forgot the name) lining in the walls of the cuddy ... warmer, quieter, less condensation.  Did you tint the f'w'd windows?  Are they Wynne's?

No we didn't tint the Fwd windows. They are tinted in my SeaSport and I don't care for it, leaving the dock at 4am is dark enough. The windows are from Motion windows in Vancouver Wa. Might have spent a few more bucks but we were able to drive down and pick them up. 

One more wiper to put on, Hand rails on the roof and get the VHF installed... then its time to start doing the little touch ups and what not.

PS: Remind us of where you are located (obviously near Vancouver, WA) and your first name?  I'm wondering when you plan on launching and where it'll be?


Thx,
Brian

Thanks twisted 1.  After reading your reply I realized all GA I look at I compare to Cannon's.  His is the only one I have seen in person.   I realized his sides are higher which makes the cuddy different by comparison. 
   Do you have a build thread?
I think I speak for for everyone, we need more pics please!
Nice work
