Kind of like a boat boot camp - not an experience for the faint of heart or anyone "on the fence" about doing something like this, but really gratifying if you make it through to the other side.

There were times when she looked like this:



When I really wondered if we'd make it..




Anyway, here we finally are - tomorrow is the day
Hold on, shipmate. You put that round port in the head of the cabin trunk? That's pretty cool, where did you get it? Not standard Alberg equipment, I assume?

Re: The date is set

That's a fine looking boat you've restored. Excellent work!

Any chance you're in Montauk or Block Island this summer? If we cross paths I'll buy you both a beer.

Regards,
Brad
