Old eyes need bigger screens? Tell her to find me a decent cover for a 24 grady offshore with a hardtop. Can't wait to see which way you go with this.

Just read the whole thread last night watching football.

WOW!!!!

Amazing stuff Andrew, good on ya'! Tip of the hat to the Admiral, too. You've really got yourself a keeper there, and a Family that any Man would be proud of.

Now I can't wait until spring to see more fishy pics. My brother and I were on Tuna Duck a couple weeks before you in 2012 and got SKUNKED! Guess all the fish were waiting for you to come rollin' in so they would bite…


Gonna aim your Yella' Boat East for some BFT in a couple months, maybe…?

Sorry for the delay,I'm @ 850 miles from Home,an it took just over 13 hrs. to get here.Trying to FUND $ my fishing Addiction...If I was to go Blue Fin Tuna fishing again it will be on a boat with a GOOD HEATER,I looked,an felt like the Michelan Man on that Tuna Duck trip,it was Cold but its hard to complain when them Monsters are biting.A note to mention Big Brothers,an I are discussing fishing The Ducks Unlimited Tournament on Big Brothers Albamarle in 2014 we are in the Discussion stages now,an Weather permitting we are ALL IN. Thank You All dpcarson,76Stamas,an Pebblenoggin for the Positive Comments.My plan is to have the Boat 200% by May "that's when the Big Dolphin migrate thru Hatteras"I have missed it the last couple of years,maybe it will be ready by then...

First message on THT from a recent join-er, and an aspiring boater...totally drawn in by your restoration...

I read the whole saga, like an epic Russian novel, and can't tell you how big of a grin it elicited from me when you finally splashed it! CONGRATS!

I was sucked-in, following along, and the end result totally paid off. Can't beat prom, weddings, etc adding color and personality to the story. Like all the "life events" like weddings and christenings, and funerals that are woven into "The Godfather". Great read. Great result!

KUDOS! (...and thanks!)

Just read the whole thing, that looked like a crazy amount of work!
Makes me feel not so bad being a little stalled on my small project in Sarasota.
Boat looks great, bet it rides really well too.
