I did, it's from New Found Metals. It's not standard A-30 stuff, none of our opening ports are (we have 4 total). I didn't like NFM's "fastenerless" outer rings (you can check out their web site to see what I am talking about regarding their proprietary outer ring system), so I drilled them out to hold a normal bolt that I could more easily through bolt. I think they look much better this way, and they were way easier to install.

I will say it was challenging to get them aligned so they looked "right". They were especially nerve racking since redoing a failed attempt at them meant so much more epoxy work and of course repainting. Luckily I got it right on the first go 'round.

BTW, thanks everyone! It's going great so far, other than I'm really beat and we are still in a limboland between land house and boat - but it's good!

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.
