This week we get some vital information on our wings from an incredibly experienced viewer. Chris from Victoria helps us understand some of the areas our wings excel at and others that may cause issues based on 25yrs of knowledge of both building and using these types of stabilizers. It's given us the chance to make a few changes while we have the wings open and also some areas we will improve over time. We hope you are safe and enjoy the episode, this is the first of our twice-weekly episodes.

This week we had three jobs on the go; Generator installation into the engine room, Main engine alternator upgrade, AC wiring was started plus a sneak peek of our new stainless exhaust and heat shroud and some further progress on the stabilizer arms Its been a very busy couple of weeks with lots of little jobs getting done and preparing to self isolate onboard Brupeg for the next month or so because of the coronavirus. Progress and episodes will be continuing as will be our focus on getting launched.

Still on the wings! We found a design challenge we weren't expecting, so we had to make some changes on the fly to get the wings back on track. We got rained out of the workshop on day 2 of the weekend and swapped over to fitting our new stainless exhaust heat shroud into the rear deck area.

This week we are back on the stabilizers, after solving the internal structural beams we moved onto the 6mm steel wing skin, figuring out how to achieve the shape we needed and solving a bunch of tricky design and construction challenges along the way. We didn't feel we had enough of Dangar Stu, this is the last few days of his trip up to Brupeg If you would like to get onboard Brupeg, check out the link below on how to do that https://www.brupeg.com/get-onboard-brupeg If you want to support the weekly videos and the build from a distance, please consider becoming a Patreon of Project Brupeg and help us launch this lovely big girl and take you vicariously with us to remote and interesting places https://www.patreon.com/join/Brupeg?

WE SPUN THE PROP!!! This week for the first time in the history of Project Brupeg (well since we have owned Brupeg) she spun her prop under the new drive train. This was a momentous moment for us, five years of work came together and we have a fully functional propulsion system! DUMP & RUN, HERE WE COME BABY!!! This is part 4 and the final in the throttle and morse cable series. The freezer room has the basic wall layout complete, the temporary volunteer bunks are assembled in each room, the conduit and morse cables are fitted and tuned to length and we are able to move onto other work needed to launch Brupeg.

The new morse cables arrived! Trev and Dame are back on the engine and gearbox control's for the next two episodes (and then back to the stabilizers). The plastic conduit is now complete and they are able to feed the new Morse cables through from the wheelhouse, via the galley, through the freezer room, and into the engine room. They start on the custom alloy bracket needed to bolt the morse cables to the gearbox and get the cable control box in the wheelhouse tuned to allow the best movement for these cables. Hope you enjoy Jess & Dame

We are still pressing forward on the Stabilisers this week. Stu from @Dangar Marinewas here for his final few days with us and Scott Jackson was able to spend a few days onboard Brupeg with us all. The stainless hinges are now complete and tack welded onto the hull, the alignment was solved and the wings will now run parallel to the direction of travel. We got our heads around how to build these wings and made a start on the internal strengthening beams. Scott managed to get a Cat 7 network run through the boat and the NAS was set up and installed into Brupeg, this gives us a huge leap forward in terms of technology and data management for the boat. This is extremely important for us as we film around 150-200gb of footage per workday so camera footage and data are easily lost and it's often never able to be refilmed (the first time we cut something off or welded something etc). And finally, our mate Trev! We were completely stuck, we had some major rain which caused some power supply issues which meant we had no way to do any work. A few days before this all happened our mate Trev donated money to help us get a generator for Brupeg, with our ability to work taken away we shot into town and picked up a portable generator that got us back up and running again. Thanks to Trev we were back to work! How do we manage to pay for this? Our patrons are who keep us going!

The first episode of a mammoth task to build our gull wing folding blue water stabilizers with the help of Stu @Dangar Marine This week our task was to figure out how to make the stainless hinges needed for each wing and we discuss the kind of stabilizers we chose for Brupeg and why. Thanks to Stu for all his help, it was awesome having him up for the week. And we are looking forward to Scott's visit next episode to install the network and NAS in Brupeg. How do we manage to pay for this? Our bloody amazing patrons keep us going!

This week we are pushing on with the freezer room cabin walls. The conduit track has been made and the wall stripped out to be completely waterproofed and sealed using Epoxy resin. All work and no play wasn't going to cut it this week, so we took the electric dinghy out for a spin, and did a couple of laps of our local boat harbor. How do we manage to pay for this?

This week we started the interior cabin construction in Brupegs former freezer room. This area of the boat is low and big so it is a great space to sleep while at sea. We are building two cabins (one a double berth cabin, the other a quad berth cabin) and two floor to ceiling storage areas. The reason we have started the freezer room interior is the need to run main engine control cables, by fitting a midline wall we are able to hide morse control cables down the centreline. Hence the need to split the room in two as part of dump and run We hope you enjoy it Jess ad Dame How do we manage to pay for this? Our bloody amazing patrons keep us going!
