Hi Bruce, Thought I would e-mail
you a couple of pictures of Dan's 43' Voyager. Things are going pretty well, and should be
setting side shell later this week. Will be setting keel and rudder tomorrow. Altogether
we have about 60 hours in at this point, not bad considering we only have had 1 man
working steady on it!! Rumor has it there is a 57' possibly looking for a
construction site from Colorado. We are having so much fun we'd love to build some more!!!
Could you add us to your Metal Boat newsletter as a West Coast assembly company??? It
would be great if you could. Well, Bye for now, back to welding!
FROM ANOTHER OWNER / BUILDER:
Hi Bruce. Thanks for letting us know about the pictures on your web site. They look great
and are quite similar to our present stage. We have just finished painting the engine
room, installing the custom fuel tanks and are putting lead in the keel, then the engine
goes in. From there we will build upward (we felt tanks and engine needed to be installed
first). Anyway its going well. Often times it is slow, and then we seem to make great
leaps and bounds. Overall we are very happy to date with the project. The boat should be
at an extremely fun stage by then as the interior goes together. I will send you photos
sometime down the road. I will keep you posted. Take Care and we'll talk again soon.
Hi Bart,I saw the new photo's this morning, the
last being of the bow bulb. The whole project is a credit to the
professional skills of you and your team. It is also a great way of
advertising; one good picture is worth a thousand words. Glad to see more
work is headed your way. I am awaiting the outline plans for a TY60 to
consider what we are doing. Wish you were just down the road! For ocean work
the full displacement trawler yacht appears to be the way to go for us. The
Pacific is terrific, but a long way from anywhere if you are in a tom thumb
with large waves....Your threesome must be working long hours. I will follow
your TY43 and later the TY60 with continuing interest. And when you finish
the TY53, please go out and have a Foster's in the knowledge that down under
at the same time someone is saluting your construction crew for a job well
done.My engineering friend on reviewing your photo's also made the
interesting comment that your worksite is always clean and safe - another
sign of good management and training. Regards David

Actually, we only have 3
persons dedicated to this project, (1) fitter (my brother), and two very
good welders. We have a general labor person help out from time to time. The
Owner will be doing the fit-out as far as interior etc., but we are doing
the engine installations, engineroom piping etc., and tankage. We also are
installing all of the doors and widows. Salon area to be fit up starting
today..should have a complete shell up by end of week. Bart S
