This Coastworker 30 Mk 2 (planning version) was built in Thailand. Designed for getting to the fishing grounds quickly and safely the hull was built from steel with the deck and superstructure being built in glassed over ply for weight savings. It was a pleasure working with this builder.
Building the hull
Frames standing in position on the strongback with the stem bar in place. The
stringers are now being tacked into place.
Roll over day. A beautiful hull and a credit to the first time builder.
Note the cut down aft bulwarks. The builders innovation.
As there is much debris in these water the prop and rudder have been well protected.
Vessel undergoing sea trials.
