You should be able to do quite a bit with 40 gallons

Your boat looks great.  I traveled with a friend that has a salt water sprayer mounted at the galley sink, it is part of the wash down system.  We saved a lot of fresh water by using it.

Started working on my "Prince Rupert Bulwark" Did not have any 3/8 inch plywood, but had some scraps of 1/2 inch left over from my cabin sides, so ran them through the surface planner and made some 3/8 inch plywood that would bend around my sheer deck. It worked great, first time I have run plywood through my planer, love the Byrd spiral cutter head. Made a bunch of blocks tilting out 5 degrees  to hold the bulwark, think I will really like the look and hopefully thew will keep the boat a bit dryer in big seas. Hopefully some finished pictures in

Can't wait to see the bulwark on the boat ... I wish more folks would put one on.  Same with raised coaming around the cockpit ... very classic

The bulwarks look cool. That said, I think they're impractical. I'm frequently nosing up to a beach and jumping off the front end, and a bulwark there would be cumbersome for hopping on/off under the rail. On the back deck I frequently have shrimp lines etc. being pulled up over the gunnel, for instance after I grab the buoy and pull some slack in then cleat it off before rigging the line through the pot puller. I have UHMW rub rails along the top outer portion of my gunnels, so the lines rub on the rub rails. With the bulwark back there, you'd have to figure out how to reinforce the top with some kind of rub rail, plus then just the simple act of putting a fender and dock line on would be cumbersome without more thought. Finally, I'm always walking all over on the back gunnels and the bulwark would take away valuable foot space. Anyway, here's a vote for smooth, clean gunnels. Great thing is that building these ourselves everyone gets what they want!

I see your point on the rear bulwarks, and will probably not put them on, opting for UHMW on the rear gunnels.

Got my seat and was able to get cabinets started on starboard side. Per Brian's plan, left 44 inches for helm seat. Will put House batteries under helm seat. Aft of that, the sink with hot water heater under. Aft of that have a galley cabinet, galley stove and then finally a 24 inch hanging locker.

Looking great Lindy, you guys are really ripping (as per usual)! That Alaskan Kolsch is good stuff too! :) Curious what your plans are for your house bank...

Per Dan Bocca's advice I purchased 2 200 AH LI Kilovault batteries. Should give me plenty of power to hang on the hook for a day or two.

You have the biggest pilot house yet, and it's going to be very-well accommodated ... a real live-aboard Kodiak!

Oh ... and it's looking awesome too!  First-class work!

Awesome, that's what I put in mine too. Capacity for literal days...

No pictures to share, got all cabin bulkheads in and Ms Jones just finished 3rd coat of epoxy on them. Busy sanding and faring. Push to get areas finished to a point where we can begin the plumbing and electrical. Dan Bocca has graciously agreed to come down from Anchorage in November and help me with the wiring. Knowing my skill set and temperament, It will be great to have the expertise and help. I am certain the end product will be much safer. Thanks Dan!

Nice progress! Looking forward to being part of the team.
As far as writing a book....Nigel Calder already did! You just hafta read and study it for a couple years to really get a grip on it all. Incredible resource.
