Page 8; Building a 55′ DUCK

Steel boats when built using long sheets like these are tend to be pretty “fair” naturally. However, this boat is getting a real yacht finish so time is spent doing really good surface fairing.
More fairing……
Looking pretty good even IF the photographer was a bit crooked……

I like everything about this ship except for the rake to the fly-bridge. Apparently I’m the only one around who likes the vertical “in yo’ face” traditional flybridge face. Oh well. The bottom line is, of course, that the owner likes it! Here she is on her sea trials.

She Floats Right Side Up (!) and was delivered to Seattle 10/05. This link will take you to

photos of her on a cruise to Pt. Townsend for final commissioning.
