As mentioned earlier, when not sailing, in September and October I spent a lot (a lot) of time trying to find a space big enough to build the Pahi 63. The idea was that we’d get a big shop, hire a bunch of guys and build it really fast.
That is not what happened.
What happened is we decided that the time spent looking for the right space would be better spent building the parts of the boat that we could build with the space we have, which is to say our garage and driveway. Today we passed a (small) milestone in the Montauk Catamaran Company boat shop. We moved the first two finished pieces out of the work area and into the storage area.
The photo above us akas #1 and #6 on a trestle of made of 4″x4″ pressure treated lumber. On the left is my friend Dave, who put in about 600 hours on Mon Tiki, and on the right is my wife Amelia, who’s idea it was to stop looking for a space and just start building the damn thing already.
These akas are over 26 feet long and weigh about 400lbs. The three of us moved them, which wasn’t easy, but wasn’t too hard either. Its the first chance we’ve had to just sort of look at them and think, “Wow, this is going to be a big boat!”
In the foreground are materials for akas #2 and #3. When finished they will be nearly 29 feet long, which is the full breadth of the ship. Then we’ll make two more just like them (#4 and #5) and that part of the Pahi 63 will be finished!
