Above: Hull #1 'Rosie' at 18 knots.
Hull #1 was launched in June of 2019 pictures here. Also, check out her complete build thread on our builders forum. Ken did an amazing job on his build. A custom build jib crane was added so that he could store his Spindrift 9 dinghy on the cabin top.
Hull #2: . Photo Album and Build Log (forum) (updated every few weeks)
Hull #2 is the first OB-26 to be built from a CNC cut kit by B&B. The keel was laid in Aug. 2021. The owner decided they would like a bracket on the back to increase available cockpit space and hopefully reduce engine noise. They will also be using a larger 150hp motor. Due to the larger motor and higher potential impact loading, the bottom scantlings were increased from a single layer of 12mm okoume to 1 layer of 9mm and 1 layer of 6mm okoume.
