I think I am getting this boat confused with a guy who converted a shrimper hull into a trawler. Think he took it all the way to Guatamela?

Anyone remember that boat?

New pictures from today. I am covering up the rails, there was a lot of rot down deep from the rail supports. Dug it out and replaced it. Took some drive buy shots.

Greetings,
Mr. S. That second last shot (bow) does it for me. What an impressive vessel. I've never seen her from that angle.

Come-on, Marty.....you're a woodworker and could make Wm into a mini-Swampu any time you wanted! Get on with the extended roof project.....probably less work than the cockpit hardtop was.

Paul, Cajun Rose is looking great. Really good lines on the sheer and bow. Much progress since last report. Don't be such a stranger.

Thanks guys, i've been working real hard. I found a guy that can really work the fiberglass and he has been really pushing the whole project along. Its gratifying to see progress everyday after so long with not much happening. The electrical work is working and I am still waiting on a mechanic. I'll post some pictures of the electrical work when I go down to the boat. Thanks again. Paul

Well as promised. Two gensets run two switches that run two ac panels. I can select either genset to run either panel or both. My main ac draws are heat and ice maker. If I want to run everything I can run both gensets and split the load between them. The dc is similar, I have two banks for two engines. I can select between both and parallel. After almost 10 years there is a panel that is lit up and a switch for the bilge! Great feeling.
