Didi 29 Retro Project Update

Another project that hasn't seen an update on this blog for awhile is the Didi 29 Retro being built by Bruce Mierke in Murphy, North Carolina. Bruce was away cruising for awhile but is now back hard at work on his boat. He is building her mostly as a day-sailer, with minimalist accommodation in a shortened cabin. He is setting her up for easy single-handing.

The standard of Bruce's work is clear in these photos that he sent me, showing the current state of his project. He is building from a CNC kit that we supplied.
Hull-turning with two gantries.
Deck stringers over bulkheads.

Deck panels ready for fitting.

Minimalist interior.
The very neat work of professional boatbuilder Bruce Mierke.

Cabin structure begins, considerably reduced from the design.
Bruce is doing sweet work on this build, I look forward to seeing the final result.
