Thanks Zman, your right, Captain Steve is amazing, we merged the first of the year. Bringing Both shops under one roof and doubling our size. Steve's knowledge and his eye for details, combined with our composite experience, is great synergy.
The Radovich will have our latest Laminate schedule for hardtop and steering console. Vacuum bagged Carbon fiber laminate. Here's a photo of the bagged steering console.

    Man do I need to see the final pix when this one hits the water. The 34 Radovich's may be my ultimate boat. Perfect combo for fishing and diving, spacious and comfortable cabin, great deck space. Don't seem to be any builders left making this style boat, which in my view, along with the Crystaliner flybridge models, are the perfect boats for SoCal waters. Like the lines of the Radovich better though and this one is looking to be an outstanding example.

    Thanks Kevin when I first saw the boat a couple of years ago, I thought it had great lines, Who knew I would get to restore it. I agree this is the perfect size for California

    Thanks for the great responses! tower had a hiccup, we missed on the rear leg spacing, of course we miss on the shop job. I will have some photos next week, 98% done, 100% to go.
    nothing prepares you for how much work goes into building one of these towers.

    Hi Neil I have seen you on the water in Long Beach, will try to hook up, I will be keeping the boat in the harbor near the Yacht Club.
