Our spirit of tradition 68 in-build at Betts is moving steadily along. The cockpit has just been taken off the mold and is getting fitted.
The raised bulwarks are being built with internal details for stanchion sockets, pop-up cleats, and Stephens Waring Design custom flush padeyes, which have been machined out of solid stainless steel. Once the cockpit and bulwarks are complete Teak Deck Systems will pattern the deck with joinery details specified by Stephens Waring Design. Teak Decking Systems works with our specifications to create a truly unique teak deck.
Interior joiner work is proceeding in the cabinet shop, and a beautiful owner’s shower is being crafted on board of old-growth Port Orford cedar that Jim Betts has been hoarding for a couple of decades and was gracious enough to release for this project. We recently switched the air conditioning system from AC to DC resulting in a 30% improvement in efficiency and increased cooling capacity. The carbon-fiber spars are beginning to come together at Offshore Spars for a spring 2022 delivery.
