Welcome Bill the Kid!

Lake Erie was fun! I used to run my 16' Donzi from LaSalle to S. Bass Island.

Hope you have some late summer weather to get ahead for next season...

Not sure what winter is typically like where you're on the hard, but best of luck getting it ready for the spring to realize the dreams that brought you together.

Yes thank you this isn't my first boat refit rebuild. I did a 1969 River Queen about 13 years ago and I still owe on that boat today. The river Queen is a steel hull boat when I got it it would not float I put a whole new hole in it reconstructed the whole interior it was gutted when I got it and added on many exterior parts now it's one of the neatest boat on Chautauqua Lake. We've had up to 30 people on the boat for 4th of July. If I could figure out a way to upload photos I would show you
