I'm guessing it's cherry.

all the wood is cherry. The finishes are at different stages and also where the door was the lights were very bright

In the context of what this Wesmac is about....Freeman is a like a '73 Ford Pinto

Give yourself 50 lashes and wait for Mod 11 to assign your proper punishment

You may have missed the sarcasm. Different strokes I'd take the Westmac over any Freeman all day long. But I do appreciate what all these builders are doing in the cat market.

I'm gonna give you some really good advice, based on experience.

I think those are the same door handles (the one on your sliding door) my buddy has on his yacht.

Take each of the 4 screws that hold the "faceplates" off and put anti seize in them. The outside part (which is just flat so nothing can grab it) has two flat sides on the barrel to keep it from spinning when you remove the screws. The screws get stuck and turn out the flat sides where they go into the body of the door handles. Then you have to cut a slot in them with a dremel to remove them, and then buy new ones.

Those locks, and their assoc parts, are NOT cheap!

For my own selfish interest I hope it doesn't sell until "we" get to see her finished and running

Nahh best wishes sir, please keep us commoners in the fold on your next boat

Just found this great thread...then see you have if for sale already. Was worried you had a family/business urgency. But appears to be a sale to build a larger one. Keep posting pics so the rest of us can continue the vicarious adventure of this sweet build.

Because he wants to?? OP shared this wonderful venture with us and gave a glimpse into some rarefied air that most never get to breath, no need to be all up in his grill over the how or why of personal decisions.

I donít mind sharing. I sold my business 14 months ago for more than a life time of earnings.

I LOVE a project especially when itís boat related.

Two trains of thought.

Build a bigger Wesmac

or

buy a 60 plus foot Bluewater cruising sailboat and take my family around the world for a few years.

I am hoping I can convince my wife on option 2 as itís always been a dream of mine.

Now you have it from the horses mouth. This is definitely not a distress sale or a bargain opportunity
Corndog38 and andylakeside like this.
