Got the wings done on the cabin today and got the overhand hot coated. Some light sanding tomr and wipe down for some gelcoat over the weekend.
I did the math for the door to match the starboard and should start it over the weekend. Some mahogany, a piece of 1/2 plywood and a little starboard as a glide and track.

Atta boy. Steady progress!!! Yeah, got the exhausts done on both sides. Just gotta figure the intake. My oldest boy, Steve, said it should go under the first side window. I think he might be right. That or up high somewhere for convenience. Maybe on the top of the house to keep it out of the way? Not sure yet. But under the gunnel seemed the best place to hide the exhaust.

True. Hey, can you you gelcoat over west system? I only had a little bit to coat on the exhaust panels, my feeling was better than making a batch of poly!

Took some time and built the door for the back of the house. Looks like it will do the job! Now just some filler, glass and gelcoat

Framing is a pia, I forgot about that. Ohh well c’est la vie! Thought about a big window, scratch that! Three across the back.

I found one of the originals. I have been searching for a webbers cove from the late 60’s and early 70’s. But like most finding a downeast on a budget and raising a family at the same time is tricky. This one is a ‘71. The hull is good but the cabin was done without much thought to downeast flare. I think it will need some time, material and effort. Spend less and work more on it. She has a 3116 for power.
Well the good first:
Use her for the nice part of the season. Enjoy the time and work on a little clean up.
The bad:
She will need to undergo a little transformation during the off season. I figure block her up on the hard and do the bottom. New thru hulls and bottom paint.
Hopefully the good weather in the fall is consistent and lasts into November.
Here is a question for the gurus of this forum?
Stick build a cabin or I believe there is a top in blue hill Maine that might be available. Simple or build my own?

Fifteen years ago I found a WC34 that I repowered and rebuilt her house, deck and flybridge. Its a project.

Here is hull # 16 built in 1970 that I repowered w/ Yanmar 350 and a total refit over two years. Great sea boat and easily driven. Good luck on your project.

Nice, they all take money, time and effort. Just chugging along on this one. When it’s done it will be a lot of fun to use.
she is a beauty, take good care of her.

I have to ask. Where is the hull number?

what do you get out of her for cruise w that yanmar? i have a '71 WC34 with a 6-71N, always wondered what she'd do with a little more power and a little less weight....

cant wait to see more pictures of this build coming along, giving me some ideas for down the road. I'm planning on cutting into the deck this winter, god only knows what can of worms I'm opening but its time, decks pretty soft at this point.
