Spray 52 Trawler built by Put Vejini Ltd Riga Latvia

Wednesday, January 08, 2003  Dear Bruce, We have now built NINE steel boats to your boat plans already, 1 x R434D, 1 x WR28, 1 x R58, 3 x C-Spray 45’s, 1 x C-Spray 50, 1 x CS50 and 1 x R532.

One of the best things to happen to builders is when former customers come back for another new boat. Yes the customer for whom we built a Robert 58 in 1998 has ordered a new Spray Classic for delivery completed this year including the interior. I am very proud and happy to build boats from your boat plans for people who have such a high estimate of your design & my workmanship. Victor Tchaburko

Spray 52 / 58 Trawler/ Trader
Sailing version a variety of rigs can be used on the versatile design.

Gentlemen,
Here is the progress update on our Spray 52. The major framing has been completed. So far, everything looks good. As a matter of fact, the longitudinal lines look so good it is almost a shame to cover them with plate.

Next, we will try to fit the deck plate (to check the overall dimensions). Take a look at the pictures,- we do enjoy them. Thanks, Andrew

S52DECK-WEB.gif (20773 bytes) Deck plan is similar in either version of the Spray 52 / 58
S52ACCOM-WEB.gif (36862 bytes) This is one of several lay-outs possible in the versatile Spray 52 / 58

This three masted schooner version was prepared for one customer who is building a Spray TY 52 from one of our kits.

The kit comes complete with the setting up jigs which we see here set up on rails and bottom plates dropped into position.

"Hi Bruce: the project is off to a good start, jig is erected and a few frames have been built, by the end of today we should be finished with all frames.  I have quite a crew 3 good welders with lots of experience building and modifying boats, me and a friend round out the labour crew.

We inventoried the parts and everything so far is accounted for, it really looks quite well done.
......Regards STAN"

Pre-shaped hull shell plating is complete with reference line and is simply added until hull is complete.

JUST A FEW MONTHS LATER:
Hi Bruce: Launch occurred on June 28 right on schedule. Everything went very smoothly. Still about a week of welding to do but boat looks great, will  put in windows & doors today & tomorrow. I leave for Alaska July 11 to fish   other boat, will send you another group of pics soon. Stan

Here we see the aluminum pilot house that is recommended for the Spray TY 52 ... The Spray 58 can have a steel pilot house if preferred.

In either case the pilot house can be assembled on or off the hull as preferred and this may help with transporting the boat to the water from the building site.

 

Note the neat intersection of all plates - S52 built by Gil Davenport

 

Bruce, I have been a long-time admirer of your design work.

I finally got the chance to board a Spray for the first time yesterday. ( I almost drove off the road as I craned my neck to get a better look at her.)   She is moored alongside the St. Pete (Florida) Yacht Club Sailing Center Building.  Her builder is an interesting Polish lad by the name of Maciej Rosochowicz, he told me that he is planing a voyage for disabled sailors in the near  future.  I can't imagine a more stable platform.

He sang your praises all the while that I spoke with him.  He described an  early voyage of MACIEJKA in short, irregular, fifteen foot seas as that of a duck climbing up a wall of water and then sliding down the other side. He beamed with delight as he told me how well she steered herself.  He is truly happy.

You have accomplished a great deal more than just designing a fine vessel.  You have made a difference in the human condition.  Witness the smile on his face and the sparkle in his eyes as he speaks about his floating mistress. Your SPRAY has immeasurably improved his standard of living.
I wish you and yours continued success.      Sincerely,   Nils Klykken
