Aug 2011 - We found the foremast via Craigslist, outside of East St. Louis, Illinois. Only problem is it was actually 47 feet long and not the advertised 40 feet. The drive back was less than 50 mph making for a 23 hour long day. The up side is that the Suburban gets much better mileage at 50 mph.

Starting on the Hull
Back to Vancouver Island again. This time to bring Home a Hundested Controllable Pitch Propeller system. ...well, most of it.
Cutting out the bow and transom and the curved part of the hull.
Flipping over her 5 ton half hull, and a bit of excitement.
