That's sweet. I didn't see anything like that in a Rona store when I was up there. Keep up the great work and sell me the winning raffle ticket.

progress this last week of January

Post by Denis » Sat Jan 31, 2009 1:17 pm

A couple of pics of our progress to date. Hopefully we will close in the football Sunday morning and then start the outer stems for install during week. My thanks to Bear Mountain Boats for supplying a few more strips as I cut it too close (ie short) on a few for filling in the football.

Outer stems are on and fairing to begin tomorrow. A one week delay due to a new kitchen install at my place. Thankfully that is done and back to the boat.
