Kevin,

I enjoyed the video! Looks as if you will have a fine cruising boat when you are done!

Freakin' awesome Kevin. Keep up the videos!

You guys are doing a great job. Nice work.

(PS - I just got to the part about your wife's heel. Holy crap. That is absolutely insane. I need some serious mind bleach for those photos. I'm so glad she's on the mend.)

Re: Renovating a Catamaran - the first 5 months

Thanks SmackDaddy, and sorry about the graphic pictures...didn't even dawn on me about the graphic nature of the pictures and posting them because its something we've dealt with for so long, and being a nurse, I've seen some bad stuff - so stuff like this is another day at the office. But I understand how people can get a little freaked out by it.....hey, its just raw meat and tendons, right?

Stay tuned, blog's getting updated more frequently since were down here at the boat indefinitely and I'll have yet another refit video coming by the end of this week....one day, I'll start making sailing videos!

I think I've read the 13'6" Hammerhead ones weigh around 235 lbs., but ours is only 11'6" long with a max rating of 40 hp - but its still the Hammerhead version....but to me, it weighs somewhere in the 150 lb range....but maybe I'm just stronger than I think Yeah, should be a fun boat....but with only 15 hp...not sure if we'll be doing like the guys in the picture.
