Well, it's been almost 5 years working on this boat and I can finally see the end.
I went and picked up the boat Friday from Wooden Runabout Company. Mike and Kirk painted on the lettering, filled in the deck seams and applies the final coats of varnish. Wow, it looks fantastic! Great work.
A big thanks to Chad Durren for being my tow master. My daughter totaled my tow vehicle last weekend(long story), so Chad volunteered to help me out with his truck and make the run to Holland, MI to pick up the boat.
I spent the weekend installing hardware, hooking up electrical and installing the dash. The to do list is a mile long. I should have the engine ready to fire up after another day or two of work. Then it's time to see if it floats.
So the last hurdle is the upholstery. The leather arrives Tuesday!
Here are some pics.
