Can’t wait to see more of this project! I think you need 10 posts in order to add pictures and video.

Sweet rigs for sure.
You are correct, that's Tim's old boat. First and only PH Freeman to date, until of course this awesome boat was build.

Can't wait to see them.

Seems like you are not planning to install FLIR on this boat. Also seems like most new builds have FLIR units installed. Any comments either way?

Props to Jimmy Buffet. Not only does he make our sport/lifestyle more enjoyable with his music, but he takes our pinnacle boats and improves them!
Who would think you could improve a Freeman?

I also like that fancy sailboat he has, I don't know what he did to it, but it sure is cool.

Cool video. One thought kept coming to mind, "when you can't decide where you want the rod holders."

Time lapse of the Pipe Welders tower install. Hunter at a Merritt Boatworks took this time lapse. ����

It's crazy how small a 42 Freeman, one of the "THT Big Boys", looks in their yard.

Oh man, that really sux!






For the guys who have to finish all the paint work that is!
There are some really nice gantry cranes inside, hopefully they'll lift it back off when Johnny and the boys are done!

Yesterday artist Monique Richter completed a faux teak job inside the house. Looks awesome.
