Willard UB40 Water Taxi Build

Hi,
Thought i would update my progress on my Willard UB 40 reconfiguration/build to water taxi.
Adding roof,repainting and updating to Australian NSCV(National Standard for Commercial Vessels) we have Restless Wind in the water.
Project took 1.5 years to complete with many hurdles along the way.
She is now in commercial survey for 48+2.
Bluetide.

Dude. That is some great work. I think there was one of those for sale here in Texas in the Rio Grande Valley for some odd reason. It was super cheap, and I kept wondering what it could be turned into. Now I know.

Excellent cabin styling! I could say "appropriate" and proper, keeping true to the vintage and brand of the vessel, IMHO!

Super conversion! I really liked the down under pic, looks like the one below it might have been taken at the equator :-)

Thanks for the kind words.
I always do like to do things upside down.
