Hi Bruce,
Everything is fine with the construction of TY 47 hull shape makes it very easy to build.

Temperatures in Norway means that there is little building in the winter, but something we get to.

I'm sending what I have pictures and you will see if anything can be used.

Thanks for all contact and service so far.

Best regards Knut-Erik

Peter & Maggie Mais who built their Bruce Roberts designed Trawler Yacht in Canada arrived in Annapolis yesterday.  I went to inspect her. The boat looks Great !  They are probably 90% complete and are heading south to finish her in the warmth.  All are pleased with her performance both in terms of speed & handling.  With a Cummins B210 they see an honest 7-8 knots at cruising RPM.  They are very pleased with the fuel economy they are getting.  They report she handles well and feels stabe under all sea and wind conditions..

 

The engine space is huge, I could stand easily in it!
