    Simple and easy to use would be helpful. Maybe a drop in square tube like a Moore 24 (or other Santa Cruz uldb) and a modified mount on motor, with a hinge so it stows easier. The Moore uses a square tube to keep mount from rotating.

    With less force in electric motor, a round mount may work with a pin and slot to keep it from rotating. Be sure to drill hole at bottom of receiver to let water drain.

    The square Moore receiver was tapered to release from mold. It seems two concentric tubes may offer more simplicity.

    The transom seemed to have access ports in each hull section. The receiving tube could be mounted off-center on one of the cockpit walls.

    I like the use of wood to re-fabricate the motor assembly. The fun of creating (as AlanH knows well)!

    Good ideas Ants. I want to make it strong enough for a 2 HP in case electric doesn't work out.

    This is a cruising boat. It's going to be comfortable.

    Scrap carbon panels from the robot boat make excellent building materials.

    Urine separating composting (dessicating) head with exhaust fan.
    Perhaps, enough said.

    Good job on the composting head! It looks light and functional.
    We've used one in the boat (22') and RV trailer (14') with good success for 8 years. No smell, so we've not needed the vent nor exhaust fan. Coast Guard Approved Type III marine head meets all “No Discharge” regulations as there is no overboard plumbing.

    New Year, new progress.
    I'm pre-coating all the panels with 2 coats of epoxy, except where there will be fiberglass. That's a LOT of panels. I started by coating a panel, waiting for it to reach gel stage, then applying a second coat and then peel ply; all to minimize sanding. It makes for a very nice finish, but is very tedious and I soon wound up sanding between coats and leaving a gloss finish.Name:  IMG_2624.jpg

    I've never reefed a wishbone boom cat rig. I assume it's ease the snotter and halyard, downhaul reef 1, tighten halyard, haul in on reef 2.
    Here's what I came up with.

    Visited Richards shop to mill up some more of this beautiful western red cedar. Here is material for stringers and for the mast steps and partners.
