Sam,
I understand Katie and Drew are with you on that endeavor?

From what I can see the infused deck looks great. Looking to see the finished boat on the water soon!

Cheers
Thomas

Yeah, Drew and Katie are here in Texas.

Hull has been infused, interior is mostly in. Waiting for floatation foam to put bunk tops on and pull the interior molds.

Bottom has been barrier coated and painted.

Deck is on, glued and taped.

Making steady progress.

Hi Sam,

Congratulations to the 3CCs team.  I wish I could be present when you 'unveil & launch" the eKo.
I have been following progress on your website - thanks for posting the pics.

I do have a couple of questions if you feel inclined to add a few lines to your next post:
Will there be any features of the eKo that will easily allow one to differentiate between her & her wealthier carbon relatives?
Will you weigh the boat before you launch her?
What will the rudders weigh without the hardware?
What is the colour of the deck & who chose it?
How extensive will the option list be?

Cheers,

A
