Voyager 495 / TYPICAL Sailboat kit assembly

THE FINISHED PRODUCT !

Hello Bruce,

Quintessence is finally in the water. Still a lot of fitout to do, though the hull is finished apart from the sponson.
 
Launch was hurried up by wife (pictured), plus the land the boat was being built on got sold.  Looking forward to getting mast rigged - maybe October. Pittwater, Sydney, Regards, Andy Law
