Blue View, Bayliss 78' has changed considerably since the new year!

In February, our crew fabricated and installed the engine vents, attached the bridge to the cabin, and glassed and faired the hull. Currently, bulkheads are being built, and the cabin is being brought into the fair and paint process.

To prepare for Blue View's flip in nearly two weeks, the focus has been on removing the jig from the hull undersides, and getting the hull coated in primer!
