Congratulations John, nice looking boat. We need to put that chair to the test with one of my Fenwick and Senator. Wink

It will likely be Novemberish b4 she is ready for the blue water, and next Marchish b4 I have everything on my 'to do' list checked off.  Old boat= work.

Please note that any visitation prior to this may result in more work, and less play Smiley

You know what they say about boats? The best two days of ownership are the day you buy it and the day you sell it Grin. All the days in between = work and dumping money into it. It's all worth it in the end but it never stops.

Now you're getting serious John Smiley, that boat looks very capable. I need to give that chair a test drive one day.
