Thanks Capstan! I've been reading about your progress. Sometime it takes reading about someone else's work to motivate my own work..
Cajun, Yes that is sinker cypress I found here locally, driving pilings for a living you run into lots of underwater surprises!

Work in progress. 65' lugger reworked after a fire

Well we made our second trip to Chandler island over Labor Day. I aligned both engines before we left, took about 2 days with two of us, boat did great, we were able to make it up to about 8.5 mph towing 3 boats. Caught about 60 fish and had a beautiful weekend
