Hi, My name is Bob Fuller from Littlehampton West Sussex in the UK. Got to say your boat plans were a doddle to understand and fabriCATAMARANe.

We finished the boat recently and everyone who has looked at it agrees that whilst remaining practical it is one of the prettiest looking charter/trawler boats around as discussed with you previously we intend to market the boat and continue to use your hull design as our base, adding our own features and that of our future clients.

You can see what we have achieved using your boat plans and our skills. I hope this is of interest to you regards Bob Fuller

This Coastworker 30 is being built by Graham in Gympie, Queensland. Inside has already all blasted and primed. When building upside down this is a good thing to have done before turning. The deck can then be made from plates blasted and primed on one side and then the entire outside can be done as one lot after all the welding is finished


Stringers notched into frames. Also shown in this shot is the skeg that has been designed to protect the prop and rudder from damage.


Working first one side then the other The hull plates are laid and tacked onto the stringers


Fully plated up bow section. Be sure to only tack weld plates until entire hull is plated


Last plate waiting to be laid on


Fully plated. Notice split pipe rubbing strake, a good thing to incorporate at this stage.

Rolling the hull over. Plenty of old tires required here. Graham is now working on the engineering, deck and superstructure. We hope to bring you more photos as he progresses towards launch day.
