What wood is that on the cabin floor? I love that darker look vs the holly or cherry normally seen.

Followed this since day one. Just a fantastic build. Thank you for continuing to post updates.
Silly question, but is there a door for the head? Or am I missing something in the picture?
All the best,

The floor is Amtico. I'll have to verify the exact color name but it's teak. I love the stuff, It looks great and is very durable. No door on the head. I planned on putting in a curtain but might not. It's a man's boat so the head is for emergencies only.. I'm not afraid to add a little shame to the situation :-)

That also ensures good ventilation at all times and lowers the risk of mildew and bad odors. Not sure I can remember the last time a male used the head on my boat. The only exception is me when solo because if it is rough, for safety I will set the autopilot and use the head rather than risk going back to the cockpit and hanging on with one hand while trying not to pee on my nice teak coamings.

I would love to see Lightning Yachts take on a SeaCraft 27 Fly Bridge.

No thanks! A narrow hull like that doesn't need that kind of mass so high up.

A beautiful creation like Jay's is designed for it though and Graham/Buck deliberately used lightweight materials to further minimize the effects.

She looks gorgeous Jay! I'll be up that way soon bringing the 37 home, maybe I'll see her out in action on my run. Won't be hard to spot her amongst the fleet of plastic fantasticks!

They your's OIReelKeeper? He he he he (in my best Snidely voice)

Not to worry, they're going to ride in their normal bases since they are one piece. The new Gemlux ones are not glued together and I saved the 8' tubes which are a whole lot easier to stash down below!

One fine vessel, and I hate that Buck wasn't there to finish her up and get her wet.

R.I.P.

I like the concept. Itís not so much the money, itís the simplicity. Itís also a huge benefit to sit in a lower helm and watch traffic while overnighting in the GOM.

You can watch the radar and fishfinder from the cockpit. Overnights are going to be great.

Jay,
Chris from the Grady, Miller High Life at the marina.
Happened upon this thread and realized right away what boat this was. Awesome boat and project especially now that I've seen the whole process and your involvement.
I'm a naval architect by training myself so loved hearing about the entire build. Great to see what's possible with a clean sheet effort-definitely worth the time and energy.
Best of luck with her - looking forward to seeing her around the dock.
Chris

Am I the only one who wants to crawl over every inch of her?

Simple. Light. Functional.

My favorite part?

Takeapartable.

I can't take credit for that word.
That is a Siggyism.
RIP Sig.

Just a perfect guy boat. Sig would love her.

I stumbled across this thread, and one hour later, here I am at the end of it. Wow, what a story.
