Last day at Lady Min before lock-down 2020

Things were really starting to move along on Lady Min. The photo above is from the end of February 2020. Talk had started of a Summer launch. Alas it was not to be.

I was working on getting the last of the cockpit details finished before the boat would be moved to the boatyard for the adding of the keel and final finishing. The windows in the cabin are a nod to the Herreshoff New York 30s. As for a long time the Lady Min was incorrectly touted as a Herreshoff design. The forward openings will be fitted with fielded Sapele panels.

The cockpit was increased in size to accommodate day-sailing parties and the structure was kept as comfortable and light as possible.

The piece above is the deck collar for the mast coat.

This was pretty much how I left Lady Min in March 2020. I didn’t get to check on her for a few months and wasn’t able to re-commence work for a full year. I did however get to build the mast between projects at home in the workshop which was a bit of a squeeze building a 32′ mast in a 22′ long workshop.
