Zeke McFadin is the Project Manager for the Gia Li, a catamaran yacht hauled out at Port Townsend Shipwrights Co-op for a 3 foot stern extension. The vessel was built last year. It is a bit high in the bow, needing more buoyancy aft. A longer water line will also allow for more speed. In addition, they are replacing the plate rudders with articulated rudders for better steering performance. Zeke and Paul are fabricating the extension with aluminum that has been precut. Additional patterns are being made by Christine Jacobson in the shop.
