The new metal on the hull is completely water tight. Confirmed today. It only took 1 1/2 years for the total hull rebuild, but it was confirmed today that it is 100% water tight.
Now we can begin to move forward aggressively with the construction of the cabin interior.
Below are some pictures from December 2008 when the Tamarack was transported to Warren.

Each bench contains the fresh water tanks. The tanks are custom built using stainless steel.
Zak Jatkowski helped me finish up the benches the following weekend.
The next work day is Saturday March 19th at 0900-1600

It was a great day with many accomplishments and surprises. Our first surprise was Brian and Lauren Greaves. Their father commissioned the "Tamarack" in 1968. They spent the winter of 1969 building the interior in their front yard.

Later during the afternoon we were surprised again when George Perrin and Friend Gary Norton stopped by to share their stories of rebuilding the "Tamarack" in 1993. With Georges help we where able to get the engine started.
