Josh - like others have said, awesome job! Please post pictures of it on the water!
Question: looking back, what would you have done differently now that you are here?
Hi JoshGuys thanks for all the kind words, I have been very busy with other "chores" of life and had to put the boat project on hold for a while, I'm back now, I've already made 5 more molds and the parts have come out of the oven. I will resume posting updates on my project shortly. I won't be blazing thru my remaining tasks to finish the boat since I don't have a deadline like last year, so be patient this time around.
One thing that I haven't mentioned and I've made up my mind on this issue back in july/08 was that I was going to replace my 2-25gal-above-deck-gas-aft-tanks (near the transom) with a 70gal-fore-below-deck-tank. This will help me balance the weight that now is greater in the transom area.
For all of you that have asked for pictures of the boat on the water, I'm sorry to say that I don't have but one relevant picture of my maiden voyage trip in Loreto in July/08, since then, I've made a lot of modifications to the boat, clearly the blue tone and trim are the most noticeable. Here is the picture.
I think the only problem people have is finding the words to express how great this thread and your rebuild project is because:A lot of people see this thread but only a handful actually say something about it. You like it, don't like it, hate it, whatever... just say it, that's the whole idea of posting something like this.
Hey Josh- what kinda carpet are you gonna get in the cabin? Any new pics bro?
