Default Why I did it.....

Over the several months I have been given some grief on spending the amount of money I did redoing a 13 Whaler.....

A picture is worth a thousand words, Capt. Nathan (my 4.5 yo) had the day off from camp so we had a man day on the water....

I think he had more fun cleaning the boat than the actual ride.

Anything that helps a kid learn and have memories is worth more than any amount of $$$$ in the bank

Congrats! It looks nice. I am in the middle of doing the same on an old 17 foot aquasport CC. My son and I are working on it and I am going to give it to him when finished. I am about ready to paint. Did you paint your yourself?
