The redhead is one of our local ferro masterpieces. It looks like they put the rig from a 25 footer on a 10 ton boat.

All I know is that I'll now feel a whole lot better concerning the outcome of some of my upcoming projects on the new(old) boat. Here I was worried about replacing backing plates and resealing mounts ans thru-hulls. Looks like a trip to Home Depot is in order!

Always remember, no matter HOW badly you f#&k it up, there's always someone who did a worse job.
