Windcrest was constructed when I worked for Hodgdon Yachts. I took many hands to construct and install. I did not build all the furniture, I was the installer. The cherry interior was installed on a doug fir hull . The first photo of the birth and mizzen mast looking aft. The next is of the desk on the starboard side. The next shows the desk top and the scribes we had to do to the laminated knee. The aft ladder (cherry riser and walnut treads) looking aft has a storage compartment under which lifted up. The head board photo, the head board panel is scribed and epoxied to the aft bulkhead. Port side hanging lockers and dresser. All furniture is epoxied to hull.

Nice boat and nice work.
Seems almost a shame to get her all wet but I know she’d have it no other way.

I’ve around yachts enough to know that no matter how good the workmanship is, if the installer screws up his part of process, it will make a biiiiig difference. So, from a “Old sailors never die, they just get a little dinghy”, do be proud of what you do. It certainly looks like you did a superb job!

Great work indeed.

How is the mizzen covered? Is that glued veneer?

I guess this is the yacht under sail

The mizzen was faux wood grain painted to look like cherry. Where did you get the photo under sail?
