Thats a great looking boat. I saw some of the pictures of it before you made the top for it. You did a great job of maintaining a nice profile while adding some needed protection from the elements.

That 31' hull is recognizable from Kona to Costa Rica to south Florida to Australia, and just about anywhere in between.

I am not sure about your 50%. It would take a poll to determine that. Start a poll, I will wager you on it. I might lose, I don't know. You seem pretty sure. But maybe all these young bucks who think the world revolves around a 22 Sea Hunt center console or a 34 Yellowfin might very well have no clue about a 31 Bertram! It is considered to be the first true deep V sport fisherman that revolutionized the sport and ocean going fishing boats.
I knew right away. Not a young buck though.

I missed a chance to pick up a 31 Bertie for $10K years ago. See her refinished now, shes worth 10x that. Gorgeous boat!

nice job on the top, .......... (however I must say that I would be interested in seeing some post-mod stability calculations.)

Man what a GREAT THREAD!!!
Loved seeing all the old boats I grew up with, Glastrons, Glasspars, old Boston Whaler 17's with the wood console, MFGs, etc.

Here are 2 of my prior ones...both Baja SS models, a 16 and an 18.
