Kulas, here is another shot of the stern that may make it more of a "fantail" to you.

Beautiful work boatpoker . Crown molding on a boat . Man it's a PITA even in a straight house . I guess you cut it the same on a boat as in a house (upside down and backwards)?

Really like the lighting effect in the hatch area. Food for thought.

Greetings,
Mr. OC. BACK AWAY FROM THE TF! You just finished (OK, not the best descriptive word-suggests a completion or end point) your re-build. Enjoy her for a while before aspiring to Mr. bp's elegant alterations...

Mr. RT, fear not. There are other more pressing items on the list ahead of it. None of which will impede the use of the boat for more than a day.

Latest completed projects - rebuilt cockpit deck with scuppers, gutters on all three lockers, new propane locker for two 20lb. tanks, new 12X13' bimini and stern rails and an interesting rudder modification that works amazingly well at Our New Boat

Poker: Reviewing those blog photos was a real pleasure. It's darned amazing what you and the Admiral have done with that boat. It may be a lot of work, but the boat is such a unique specimen, she needs to be the proud lady you are making out of it. Great work!

BTW, I hope you're sending Jay Benford some photos. He's accessible and he'd love to see one of his designs getting that kind of care and attention.

Great idea, thanks. I sent a link to Jay.

Beautiful work, BP! Now that you've got that nice canvas, maybe it's time for a new avatar! I bet a good side shot will highlight her new lines.
