And just like that, our fourth GameBoat is planked! At November's end, our hull construction crew placed the Whiskey Plank on Gypsea. During November, we managed to complete tunnel construction, install shaft tubes, and begin blocking for the bow thruster.

Now, our crew begins to fabricate Gypsea's bulkheads so they are ready to install once she flips in the New Year.

The main cabin and bridge were affixed together in November, while the exterior transformed through fairing. Now, the cabin is now in primer! Our design crew is continuing to work on this build's general arrangement, along with finalizing mechanical layout and placement in the coming months.
