Re: Restoring Glory Days a 23' Belle Isle

I want to keep this thread alive just so some of the not yet launched builders have an idea of what they might be in for. At the build stage if you get it good now, down the line maintenance is a breeze, however if you think you will get to it later think again. I did not sand some areas in the cock...
