Yes, the picture above was posed. This is the way sanding is really done, with dust mask!
We opted to only have one head. This allowed us much more room in the Salon and forward stateroom. We also had room for this additional seat with an extra Fuel tank enclosed.
A detailed view of the salon, port forward, showing our small wine locker (we'll stash more wine in the bilge!).
Most of the electronics will be installed after the interior is oiled. Here are the already installed audio amps for our sound system (details will be in our next update)
Our sails have arrived! Here is Fred with our Spinnaker.
