Paul: After dropping in occasionally on this thread, this is just a word to say how much I admire Cajun Rose and the work that you are putting into her. She deserves it! You'll wind up with a boat that can safely and comfortably take you many places. Look forward to learning more.

Thank you, for the kind words. Can't wait to take my first real overnighter on her with the family.

Hi Star0210,

No, I'm at Bert's Boat Works in one of his covered slips. A 44 year old boat needs a 50 year old marina. You must have seen me passing the bridge about a week ago. Just arrived in Madisonville with her after covering 900 miles in 9 days from Florida.

Paul, I'll PM you if you want to see the solar system before I remove it. Does work really well charging the batteries (but not under the boathouse).

After being on this site for about 12 months I have just found this thread.
What a huge project. My hat is off to you Swampu. My Bad Monkey project doesn't come anywhere near the size of yours. I will continue to follow. Great job. Your family must be very proud of you.
Look forward to your next post. She is looking great. Kudos to you for saving her.

Thank you Stan,
I think half of my family thinks I'm crazy but I know when I'm done all the family will want to go for trip. Luckily the wife has been onboard since day one. Without her I would have probably quit a long time ago.

Luck to have women who want us to achieve is one of the best items one could ever find for a mate. God I love my woman!

Ha, that's funny! I don't really know what I'll do with it either. I hope to do some fishing, but I only have one son and a wife. The boat is pretty big for 3 of us. I know I'll have plenty of people riding the first few times but later on, I hope I can handle it.

You've got lots of (imaginary) friends here on TF! I'm sure some would love to volunteer to crew with you on a river fishing trip.

Have you got a riverboat whistle?

Been working inside the last couple of days. Built a floor over the engines, wrapped the exhaust with some fiberglass blanket and tape. Hope to finish the floor this weekend.

Man I love beers. Anytime your in Biloxi come on by.
Got the helm wired up, alarms tomorrow. Put the mastic on the wrap. Monday I'm going to put a day in on it and hopefully get some deck holes cut for lights and fuel fills. Might even pop the top on the fresh water tank and see what's up

I will take you up on that, I just ordered new tires for the motorcycle, so after those come in and I mount them up I will take a ride down your way to break them in good.
