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

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!

It's always good to see the efforts of other people's hard work

Honestly mate, it looks like a job well done and I wish you & Cate the best of rewards for your efforts. It looks promising!

Now it really starts to get interesting. Payback time after all that blood and sweat. Best wishes to you both.

Rock on dude. We're having a nice, mild spring. This should help you move forward with whatever you have left to do, or just go sailing if you're at that point.
