Condé-sur-Noireau, France - 48° 51' 7" N 0° 34' 20" E

Having the hull finished at the welding shop is a major step.  Chinook now looks (mostly) like a real sailing yacht.  Super, super exciting.

Welding done, the hull is put onboard a dolly to be removed from the shop.

From the dolly, Chinook is lifted onto a truck bed for transport.

This is the fastest it will ever go!

A la prochaine!

The hull is on in its way to Cherbourg to be given a coat of paint, then fitted out with electrical, plumbing, cabinets, furniture, standing and running rigging and all sorts of other expensive bits and pieces.
