suggestion poorboat, if she makes you happy, then its the most beautiful ship afloat. it makes NO difference what anyone else thinks. just remember to mix lots of love with your paint and all of your labors endured on her. the end result will be a masterpiece.

still looking for you a shoe, any luck on your end?

I may have to get the shoe fabricated as i have not had any luck otherwise, I looked back through some "before" pics of my boat and they should be suitably impressive as far as improvement goes. currently finished deck paint and working on reinforcing all stanchion/railing bases. Has anyone replaced windows? What is difficulty level? Plexiglass? Looking to be back in water by Sept...cheers to all
