Cabin sides

Here is a shot of the new cabin side clamped into position.  We had it built out of a wood called Silver Bali. There is a great company called the Kwai project that harvests unusual hardwoods from Suriname. They are working on getting their boat set up so that they can transport goods completely under sail.  As it is we ordered a freight container full of raw silver bali. We shared the load with a couple of other boat building operations to save money. We love the look of it and it is a wonderfully useful tropical hardwood.  We had the wood milled locally and were very pleased with it.
