Thanks guys, you're very kind. That last plank was 2 years ago, can't believe it.

Hopefully you have found some time to enjoy a few frozen mudslides. I tip my hat to you.
You're right, I've just stopped talking about it. I've realized that I need new friends, "what you don't want to see some new photos... Wait come back!"

Funny you mention mudslides. I just got back from a weeks vacation at Pt Jude, and we ran over to liars pub. Had a few too many. Last 4oJ, we went over to Gosmans on your recommendation and they sent us to liars. Liars, while being a bit more bar-ish, can make a mudslide.

Liars is definitely Old Montauk, salt of the earth and damn if they don’t have the best mudslide around. I remember the recommendation and the offer still holds true next time you are out this way mudslide at Liars on me. Cheers

Wearing a full coat of high build. While not the end, it's much closer. Have to admit I got a bit of a chubby seeing this complete.

That has to be satisfying. It looks bad-ass.

That first coat of primer is my favorite moment: when it stops being all the piece-parts joined together and becomes a boat for the first time. Congratulations on a big milestone! Now, get back to sanding....

Anything new on this in the last 2 months? It’s been a great to watch and she is beautiful. Rag’s

Not a lot has changed. I've been sanding and making parts for the toe rail and transom, started on the console and leaning post, but I can make screwing in a light bulb an entire weekend project.

Oh, and the trailer got here this past Friday.

Thanks. Glad to see a traditional looking console. Two many people over thinking them or going the spaceship route. Rag’s

Some progress.

Fairing complete on the Console. Need to cut door and construct a stop.



Leaning post / pedalstal. LLebroc seat going on top and a rearward facing seat for the lower. Hopefully finish fairing today.

That's gorgeous. Really like the way you filled in at the bow as well to square it off

Very nice, thanks for the update. I particularly liked your comment " but I can make screwing in a light bulb an entire weekend project. "... I can relate.
The pain and frustration melts away pretty quickly once you're able to start playing with it.

Bagging the teak transom planks. For those that don't know, bagging sticky tape has a fairly short shelf life (now I know).

Is there an "app" on my wife's Iphone that I could just click on to make a boat like this ready to go on my lift?
