So 33 to 35 is on the way? Nice. I run old FRP hatt's which I prefer but dang, nice performance and fuel burn. I myself am chicken to run and own a cold mold due to what I would probably neglect but whatever $ you have to put into that maintenance would if much would be well offset by fuel savings. And a better ride. Again, nice ride!

Heck of a project. Love what you are doing with this boat. I especially like your comment it won’t be a floating condo. Can’t wait to see the numbers you get when correctly propped.

Was a pleasure running with you through the dark, the cold, the bridge delays, down the sound, dropping you guys off at JB. Thanks again for breakfast, good luck with the yard work, keep in touch, come on down and fish with us this summer.

Gonna be a nice ride for sure.
I would take that Buddy over a glass one any day. How many wood ones did they build?

Can't wait to see the finished results.

Ninamar,
thanks for the shortcut, I will be down for sure. Keep in touch.
Boat is in Jarrett Bay and should be getting started after the first of the year. Lookin forward to getting h r to the point where we can travel instead of camp. Trip was good and took two days Nd met some good folks on the way. This I know, making this trip in mid December is no joke. We left Tuesday morning at first light and it was 21 degrees. We got to great bridge and it was 45. So very pleased with the performance of this old girl and think she is gonna be about perfect when she comes out of capn Squids work area.
Toby, I won’t lie that Viking salon looked mighty comfy when we went to go below the polar zone the first night.
