November was a month full of details for our second GameBoat, the 62' GameChanger.

Upon entering the salon, it's clear that GameChanger's final days in Wanchese are upon us. The salon sofas were fit and installed at November's end, their soft white surface a perfect contrast to the darker, bold veneers in the upper level space. The four-inch teak flooring in the galley received her final top coat this month, adding another layer of shine and protection. The dinette table was installed as well - a solid teak masterpiece, and a brilliant addition to GameChanger's upper level corner space.

On the lower level, soft goods are in - from padded panels to carpet and mattresses. The final details, though small, are adding much to the quality of the interior. The padded headboard is installed in the master stateroom, adding a punch of color to bold teak cabinetry. Wall paneling is drawing attention to stateroom valences, while mattresses are giving shape to bunks in each stateroom.

Moving outside, the cockpit is a hub of activity, as it always is in these final days: the teak has been sanded, while final components like the tackle center, halyard tubes, and rod holders have been installed. Earlier in November, our paint crew placed the finishing details on GameChanger's exterior, with final clear coats on the toe rail, transom, and drip molding. Her boot stripe and bottom paint were applied, too.

GameChanger will be christened on Friday. Look out for final photos, video, and more details!
