We appreciate all the good comments and thoughts along the way and remember anything can be done when great minds collide to build a boat together. At NEMS Boatworks we strive to make any owners dreams come true even when people say it can't be done. We were told by locals at hoffmans marina as they stopped by and checked out build that we wouldn't finish for a year or two, As we proved to everyone in jersey that we had it in a floating condition after five weeks of glass and core work was completed. It's so great to see this turn around for the old girl after so many gave up on her. She is the number 1 65' Viking built and was severely damaged in sandy with 3 breaches and not small ones either. The owner is refitting her back to original condition if not better when she gets to Florida. We will answer any questions on Tuesday so keep em coming. Just for S&G yes we are cooking steaks and all sorts of things on the grills only underway and its a magma boys remember nothing drops from them and they seal while cooking. All fuel is in open area and the fumes are not bad at all yet they can barely ever be smelled. We were sketchy of cooking over the fuel for the first two days until I got tired of cooking on the stove.

Hell if she catches fire just pop some holes in her to put it out. What's a little more water going to do?

Jokes aside I would love to see a rebuild thread on this, great project.

NEMS. Any idea when you'll cruising through Jupiter? A friend lives there and is hoping to see you come by.
All the best,

I was on this boat when the first owner owned it. I fact I walked on it with him and his captain when he decided to buy it at the Midlantic 500k. It was the Viking Demo boat that summer. Art took delivery after the boat show season that fall. Always maintained in Palm Beach condition. A very impressive ride. I also followed the repairs at Hoffmans ( my boat is around the corner ) and was impressed how it was comming along. It will be as good as new when done

Going back to the balsa. Wouldn't it take more than a few months to saturate the balsa and move from the hole out to the rest of the balsa?
