Hey John! Just read your post on rod/reel storage in the Fishing Rods section, nice! Do you still have the boat and howzit coming along?

I still have it.. work continues a a painfully slow pace.

I did drop all the boat cushions off to get redone, and aquired a new SS bow pulpit, and rub rail.  Modification/install of the house is next on the list.

I will continue to provide updates as they become available.

In the mean time, it is nice to have friends with boats!

John

    I know nothing of this boat model regarding specks. My love for a boat design starts with its lines below top of the bow. This one you have caught my attention from the first time you posted purchasing it. I do hope you
 have the fortitude to stay the course with your plans for it... Jeff

I thought I send along this snap of a 29 cruising past my slip.  The canvas gives you the protection from the elements while keeping the classic lines of the factory windshield intact.  Just a thought.

Stopped by the boat yard again today.  John has been busy mocking up a cabin.  We decided to scrap the cheap junk cab, and build ine up from scratch.  He removed the windshield and has the basic layout complete.  Next is to refine the layout with radius curves, source, cut windows, layout areas of reinforcement.  Then he lifts it off, glasses the outside, flips it and glasses the inside before installing and finishing.  Then the entire boat will get final sanding and paint.  Then hardware/metal work fab/install, and some misc stuff.  Then bottompaint and splash.  Costs are low, quality is high, but at a cost of having to wait patiently for work to progress.  I am ok with that.

No, no real progress the last several months.  Except I did buy a greenstick reel.  It holds 1.5nm of 800lb test line.  And I caught my first Ahi of the year.

   Appreciate the update. This boat you have is to my way of thinking pretty classy. I had no idea the cabin lay out could be changed around so significantly from work boat to leisure... Jeff

I like the enclosed almost pilothouse versions.  I started fishing with a friend and he’s got a full pilothouse, boy are they nice.  Makes me feel like I’m really working when I fish mine.
