Rangers or Celtic? In a room full of Rangers supporters, I'm a Celtic fan, and vice versa. I prefer rugby.
If you cruise near Dunvegan Castle, give a wave to my extended family. And please do post pictures of your progress.

My dad and I went to the Isle of Sky about 10 years ago. Agree, it is a mystical/magical place. Spent the night above a wonderful pub (can’t remember the name ) after a night of drinks and dinner.

We’re going in the next year or two, for sure.

My brother came back from a visit with some wonderful stories about the clan.

It seems one of my ancestors in the 1300s was “visiting” the wife of a rival clan chief and, upon leaving her bed chambers, he was confronted by the chief’s prize bull. Armed only with a dirk, he slew the bull, cut off its horn and took it to Dunvegan Castle where it has resided ever since. The rival chief’s wife was so impressed, she left her husband for my ancestor, starting a long and bitter clan war. Tradition requires each clan chief to fill the horn to the brim—two imperial pints of wine or whatever’s handy—and down it in a single draught to prove his or her worthiness.

When I heard this marvelous story, I immediately called my wife and said, “Listen to this! Doesn’t it explain a lot about me?”

“Yes,” she said. “It explains the bullshit!”

Let me know if I'm posting too many pictures.
Having done some projects in the past, I regret not taking enough pictures.

Get ready for this.......

The deepest pit, apart from the holes is 6mm.
The hull below the waterline is 8mm.

I am building a new rudder, this one is past being salvageable.

Great project Manny. Keep us updated.

Another Scottish descent person here, on both sides of my family. My mother grew up in the Paisley/Glasgow area. She came to the US on a ship 60 years ago by herself, and not much in her pocket. She still has her accent.

To get to the steel on the inside, I had to rip out the fish hold.
The horizontal joints have a rolled edge and overlap.
This is the starboard side. I know of two holes holes on this side. The other hole is in the fuel tank.

Manny, do the women in Scotland get arrested for taking up-kilt pictures?

No MRS.
My dragon is very very old and hiding, just like the real Nessie.
Maybe I should hold my kilt up so they can concentrate on a close up.

First time on this thread. Welcome (belated) to the forum Manny!
Wow, you have bitten off what looks to me like a BIG project. I wish you luck and will follow along when not out on the water.
My first wife's family was from Paisley. Last name of Taylor. My 2nd (and only other) wife's family hails from Dunfermline. Seems I have a weakness for Scottish lassies
Again, good luck on your boat and may you actually get time to cruise on her.
Tom

I'm Irish, but then of course the Scots are just Irish that couldn't swim!
