                  Good on you! And your friends.

                  It makes me smile to see another old one brought back to life.

                  Keep up the good work.

                    I love the layout as shown on the last post. I have the same boat and would like to follow your aft and forward deck designs. Keep the pictures coming!

                          Are you building the glass lounger on the forward area or is that being farmed out? Can't wait to see some pictures as you get this project underway!

                              I'm curious of your expected budget on this build. It's going to be a badass brand new boat when you're done. I wish I could do glass work, I'm a metal guy so all my projects are done that way. I get scared when it comes to cutting holes in mine.
