Brian,

I know it's been a long time, but the build got interrupted several times by a number of issues. You know how life is. Anyway, I finally did get the boat in the water on Friday. It's not finished yet, I still have lots of sanding to do along with another coat or 2 of epoxy and then some varnish, the rudder isn't finished yet, and I need to add rod holders, anchor trolley, and some other hardware, but I did get it in the water.

Unfortunately, I didn't take many more pics during the build. I'll try to get some more pics soon, and I'll probably post some in the Out and About section when I get a chance.

She looks really good and as usual the builder can see a lot more work where the individual looking at it says ..." What Additional Work "?
The setting where you were is really nice , some clear , fishy looking water.

Thanks, Chuck.

Pics are at Manatee Springs. We go there every year for a little music festival. Lots of mullet and catfish in the spring run. Saw a few sturgeon jumping in the river.
