Bayliss Boatworks construction update: Bayliss 72' Old Reliable

by Bayliss Boatworks 4 Aug 15:27 UTC

Old Reliable (Bayliss 72') had another eventful month. Once her bow deck was planked, she checked off another big benchmark in the build process- the installation of her cabin.

On the same day, our Mechanical Crew installed her aft Seakeeper 18 (the forward Seakeeper 9 was installed in May) and her aft fuel tank. Her total fuel capacity will be approximately 2,600 gallons- perfect for long runs out to FAD's.

In August, the Exterior Carpentry Crew will install the salon bulkhead and glass Old Reliable's bow deck. Her interior spaces will also receive final primer in early August. The Mechanical Department is in the early stages of the heat exchanger flow panel layout, as well as the freshwater rough-in.
