YUKON / Erik Jansen / Email address not valid 5-6-03 / 7-98: (started 01-01-92): is now almost ready, I have some painting and interior work to do. Motor is installed. Finished 1999 (see Customer Photos)

YUKON / Glen Zwicker / Nova Scotia, Canada / gzwicker@bwr.eastlink.ca / 05-22-02: Started building in summer of ’00. Turned the hull in 09-01. I have the forward cabin area just about finished, and am just now doing the side decks aft to the transom. The cockpit framing is in, and I have all the roof beams laminated, and the mast and spar is glued up. I live just a few miles from Wayne Milner, who has completed his Yukon, and whose magazine-published story is on this web site (look in MISC in the sidebar on the home page). Wayne has been a great help to me, both with advice and physical help, and I would have been reluctant to start building without his encouragement. 1-3-03: The project is now completely “closed in”. The windows and doors are in place with the engine (Ford Senator 120) and fuel tanks (2 x 185 imp. gal.) inside but not installed. I am now doing some wiring and plumbing on milder days, and working at sub-assemblies in the shop on most days. The project is outside. I am looking forward to springtime when I can add the bulwarks, rubrails, swim platform, flying bridge, and mast. Tentative launch date is October ’03. 5-7-03: Over the winter I installed the engine and aligned it with the shaft, and did all the below-decks electrical, fuel, exhaust, ventilation, heating, plumbing, engine cooling, and other systems. Now I am taking advantage of the improved weather to work outside, and have the bulwarks about half done. It’s a lot of fun…..sorta takes over your life though! 05-22-04: The flybridge is now ready for primer. I made a few changes up there. I moved the helm to the far right, and made the seating back-to-back athwart-ship with a two foot passage, fore and aft. She will be then ready for exterior paint. Inside, a bit of sanding will have her ready for final finish. I have all the various mouldings milled and pre-finished. She is going in the water for sure this summer! 6-8-05: Well, she didn’t go in the water last summer, but she is in now. Launch date was May 23,’05. I’ll put a picture in the Customer Photos section as soon as I can.

YUKON / Tom Schmidt / Frostproof, FL / tlsch@att.net / 5-2-03: I’m building the Yukon with some modifications. I have completed the site preparation and have the building form up and 9 frames completed.
1-20-04: I’ve completed the frames and have started planking the hull as of this date.
6-16-09: I haven’t updated my building progress in some time. I am currently working on getting the outside of the boat weather-tight in case I have to move out of my current location and finish the boat outside. I have most all of the major construction completed at this point with the exception of the fly bridge and swim platform. All systems are installed and only require wiring and plumbing to complete them. Inside requires work on paneling and cabinets in the salon and stateroom and then flooring. It’s been a long time since I started this project, just over six years but I’m closing in on the launch date. I hope it won’t be too much longer before I can sit on the aft deck and enjoy a sleepy afternoon on the Molly B.

YUKON / Kaye Lenn / 60 miles southwest of Washington, DC / kblenn@msn.com / 7-7-03: We have completed the hull of our YUKON have the Deadwood in place and are starting to cloth the hull. We intend to use Vectra cloth as I put it on a previously built boat and very pleased with it’s application as well as wear. We would like to correspond with some other YUKON builders.

ZIP / Doug Hodder / daizydogg4@sbcglobal.net / 2-5-00: Cut out frame members, built form. 2-12-00: assembled frames, transom, and stem. 2-13-00 Installed keel and battens. 2-19-00: Installed chines and sheers. 2-26-00: Received plywood, began fairing. 3-2-00: Had heart failure at price of outboard. 3-5-00 I scored a parts boat on the way home from work. I got a 1957 Mercury 45 hp. motor, all the vintage hardware, steering, etc… The beauty of it all is that it matches the motor on the boat in the photo of your catalogue circa 1957. 700$ for the motor and the works. Heart failure averted. 3-17: Finished planking hull. 3-18: Fill and finish screw countersinks. 3-20: Glass tape joints. 3-20-00: Fiberglassed bottom. 4-1-00: painted the hull, two tone, 1/2 inch white stripe with aquamarine bottom and clear coated it. 4-3: took apart building cradle, will reuse parts to fabricate cradle to build out the topside. 4-25-00: Boat is turned over. Floor blocking and carlings in. Intruments are in dash, design detail routed into figured maple with padauk inserts. (See Customer Photos-Archives)
