Construction of Jewell began in May 2014.


Fitting out hull.

After turning the hull the first thing that struck me was how much of the boat was already built, usually with new construction when a hull turned over you have an empty shell to start fitting out, but with this kit almost all bulkheads and internal structures are already fitted.

The down side is that the next part of the job is to fillet all these pieces to the hull. Of all the jobs I do as a boatbuilder this is the one I like least, luckily I have Rory to help.
