We are so close now!
We will be ready to launch spring/summer 2022   There is still plenty work to keep us busy over the next couple seasons, but we are finally seeing the water over our dreams horizon. The day dreaming is morphing into planning as we are listing and considering all our options to move and launch the...
A productive winter on the interior
 
A productive winter on the interior
As much as possible, we try to spit the work by seasons, making the best of the cold and warmer weather. The interior woodwork is what I focus on in the winter. This winter, the interior really came together, its finally feeling more like a home then a construction site.  All the wood used is...

An early visit of our living quarters
There is still lots to be done to finish the interior but the layout is complete. Here’s a quick visit of Mimi Jane’s living accommodation. Keep in mind it is not finished and that the boat is far from yachty, without much luxury. We are building it for ourselves with our needs and likes in...

Wow! I’m realizing it has been over a year since I updated anything on Mimi Jane’s website… its a little shameful really.  Even though the website doesn’t show it, I can assure you that the work is on going and the progress really exciting.

After we finished making the wood blocks shells, way back in the spring (http://mimijane.ca/the-block-production-started), I then moved on to building the interior. Apparently...

Andrew Soper, in Kingston (Ontario) is our sailmaker, but also an amazing source of knowledge for all that regards our rigging.
The poop tank
 
The poop tank
Or, as Mark likes to call it, the Great Scott… Poop isnt very glamour but a serious piece of logistics for the live aboard boat. Our original plan for a holding tank was to have it integral to the hull of the boat. Over some second thoughts we decided that we would make an independent tank...

A few updated views of Mimi Jane
We are reaching the end of the warmer season and getting the boat ready for an other winter. Aesthetic changes this summer were mostly details but improved the boats appearance from plain hull to looking closer to a completed vessel. 
Mimi Jane is her name!
 
Mimi Jane is her name!
Finding a name This summer, Mark and I started the itch to get our boat officially named and registered. Naming a boat, more so a boat we built over many years of dedication, is not trivial, this name will be her identity.  We need to feel attached to her name and we want her name to...
