29 june 2006:    day 44

- sail drives prepared for regular anti-foul (cannot use copper coat on these)

- 4 x 1250 gph bilge pumps and float switches installed and wired (2 x engine rooms, 2 x hulls)

- we decided to have the hull bilge outlets as near to bridge deck level as possible but

towards the stern behind the chainplate bulkheads so as no to interfere with future furniture fit-out

- the engine room bilge pumps outlets are shared with the engine room hatch drain (fewer holes in the boat!)

- pic of steering cables through engine room bulkhead via plastic tube all the way to the rudder bulkhead

- launch scheduled for this coming monday 03 july 2006
