10m power cat update

At the end of 2018 I posted a power cat hull build. Upon completion of the two hulls, they were picked up by the owners and taken home to Maine to build the crossbeams and cockpit, as well as fit engines, electrical, etc. I’m happy to report that the resulting boat looks spectacular, and the owner/builders say that the shakedown cruise went well, with a smooth dry 20 knots. stock props.

Finally

I’m finally able to log into my blog. Using the workstation which has win 7 and is typically not online. Something changed with the laptop using win 10 and I couldn’t log on anymore. I temporarily blocked my antivirus software, but still no go. So to work this I will have to ye the workstation for a while.

I’m Back

I’m back.
I never got headaches. Suddenly I had pounding ones.
Cat scans showed nothing.
I was about to board a flight to Kauai when Dr called. She said do not fly, go to emergency immediately.
I remember the ambulance ride to Swedish hospital and nothing of the next three days.
Years of warfarin had built up pressure in skull. It took two sets of burr holes to relieve the pressure.

First few days I couldn’t even use phone.
Much better now. Back in the office most days now

A Nice Note

I got this nice note from the HaynesCarstens family.
” We are frequently asked what type of boat she is, and are always proud to answer that she’s a Kurt Hughes! Just wanted to send well wishes to you, and let you know how stoked we are on your design! Here’s to a speedy recovery so you can get back to creating more wonderful things for folks to enjoy!! Best Wishes! :~ The HaynesCarstens Family
