Schooner Mermaid Begins Construction

After years of design work, the Mermaid has begun construction!  Her keel was laid on 24 July after our builder, Custom Steel Boats in Merritt, NC, received their first load of steel from Metals USA in Mobile, AL. Special thanks to Michael Kasten of Kasten Marine Design, Inc for the collaboration and design work as well as support from Nick Boksa's team from Boksa Marine Design, Inc. for detailing the cutting files and assembly diagrams. This is a major milestone for our project and it feels very good to have this project underway.
