Yep, that's actually the next project, our retirement "condo". I need to get Linda to show me how to make cushions so we'll have to plan a trip up your way. While we're at it, maybe you can prove to me that you really catch that many fish when you go out. I won't believe it until I see it for myself in person!! :D :lol: :lol:

Thats not a problem with any of the above. As far as me showing you in person, we don't lock our doors and the beds are always made and we have also allowed pirates and ordinary sailors to slip in in the middle of the day too and sleep over. So maybe you won't be too homesick when you get here. :lol: :lol:
Thats right, you are running out of excuses, especially since approval to upgrade and update has now been witnessed by the world. :lol:

Now hear this ,,,,,,
You crowd are now informed that wearing fancy paints and running around with fluffy window skirts does not distract or scare off the creates of the deep blue, much less the inhabitants of the pristine sandy bottoms of our great land. Dinner at 1830 on the poopdeck 8)
The evening fare will be grey trout and cherrystone clams, with a combination of little necks included.

My last encounter with Piesporter Goldtropfchen [many bottles to say the least] was at the White Lion Pub in St. Aug. Fla. That was for sure the last time I sipped on the stuff way back yonder when there was not a lot of people on Earth. I somehow made it back to the boat that evening but woke up the next morning with what I thought was a head that had been run over when crossing the road that evening. So I went back in the am to see where the blood stains were . :shock: :shock: 8) :lol:

Well not to worry, there are more where they came from, but we do not ship, but we do take the ship to get them. :wink: So all is not lost if you make it this way. 8)

I'm guessing fancy rod holders that aren't hung up yet.

Your boat does look nice.

Thanks, this is fun stuff, even though there is still lots of cosmetic work to be done, including the detailing of the window trim[which is showing paint that found its way under the lowtack tape in that shot] :shock: . Those are teak fishing rod holders awaiting to be hung foward. I actually made two sets since I hate plastic anything anywhere close to the boat unless its the last resort.
