Don't solar panels have to be mounted outside to produce power?

Out in the sun to cure the fresh paint on the port cabin side.

Bob, Ebbtide is a testimony to how beautiful a Grand Banks really is once the flybridge has been tossed in the trash.

We have applied for admission to the Pt. Townsend Wooden Boat Festival in September. Anxiety and OCD meters are now maxed!

Yup - Sailor of Fortune got it right! You've got a great looking "Low Rider" I do really like FB's on boats for cruising fun, and on many boats the FB look is OK too... but must say - You have convinced me that for general good/better looks your model GB shows best with crew cut rather than a mullet!

Couldn't help[ but place this ageless ditty on here...

Glad you liked my humor. Was a little afraid to post that song... not sure how you'd take it. It is a cool classic little ditty!

Enjoy your classic "Low Rider" beauty of a boat to the hilt!!

Congratulations Bob, I might make the trip up and Port Townsend would be a fun place to stay. What are the dates in September?

How have I missed this thread?
I will have to go back and re-read it now that I'm aware but first let me say that the boat looks great!
I never understood the apathy people seem to have for flybridge boats until we spent a month cruising in the Pacific Northwest. Now I get it!
We still would not want a boat without one but we live is a very different climate.
You've created the perfect GB for cruising the PNW.
