Main deck - salon etc. Other layouts possible. Give us some thoughts  on YOUR arrangement. 

Dear Bruce,  I received both down loads yesterday afternoon, and let me tell you I haven't

stopped looking over them since i have received them.

I think between yesterday afternoon and last night I spent about 8 hours going over the hull lot, I could view all PDFs, Word , and Excel files.  I'm so over whelmed by what you have sent me and so great full that you have I really can't thank you enough Bruce,  Thank You Kindly.

Bruce its opened my eyes again to what I have spent part of my life doing not only building them at a younger age and year spent on the water with all the boats i have own in the pasted and currant and just to view real plans again! I can read and understand just about all plans there are few small terms i Haven't herd before but ill pick it up.

I've all ready been down to our local office-works today and printed all drawings and layouts / pretty much what ever i could print from AO to A3 to A4 and have set them all up in clear folders so i can study them more, the TY43 is the boat iv been looking for iv all ready chosen my layout i like 1c the best with with 1ccc saloon layout not the one that go's all the way out to the gunnel, i still like the idea of full walk around,

I also like the dry stack exhaust and I like how you have all so added paravane's because i was planning on installing them plans would be single engine with wing, 

Bruce I really cant believe the amount of detail you have put into them its really great. Any way Bruce thank you so much for your kindness and believe me i will not be purchasing any plans from fines line!

Bruce I will keep in touch, and I'll make contacted with Andrew and when I'm ready to place the order for the cutting files / plans I will let you know and  contact Andrew hopefully the purchase what be to far away. Thank You Kind Regards, Scott Johnson

KIT or boat plans & Cutting Files

This is a great family trawler; over 100 have already been completed from our

 cutting files and plans are are already in service world-wide.

We have hundreds of construction photos and photos of completed TY 43's in all

 layouts - all these photos are included with the study plans.

FROM THE BUILDER:
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. Fondly, Maggie


Subject: RE: TY43  From: David C. Munro

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
