Progress Update

It has been awhile since I updated this blog.  I have kept involved in the construction of Mist when time allows.  Work and family have gained much of my attention and that has been rewarding.  I had the fortunate experience of traveling to Portland, OR for work in April.  I met up with Eric and the PDX folks on a few occasions and was able to sail on boat PDX #1.  Eric and the North Sails Rep. Kerry explained many of the ins-n-outs of sailing an assym spin.

Off we go in my first ride on an i550.  Thanks Eric and Kerry!

In late June I was able to pick-up with building Mist.  I've completed deck installation from bulkhead 110 aft.

Foam deck with cedar strips on rolled edges.

I'm currently working on the the sprit installation and finishing all tasks for the foredeck install.
