She is looking really sweet. Going to really pop when the final gloss is on and the bling added. Great job.

Keith,

Awesome finish... and the curves appear perfectly fair and symmetric. Real eye candy!

Regards,

Steve

I really appreciate everyones kind words about the Biscayne.

Words can't explain how satisfying it has been for me building boats. I guess it is the challenge that keeps me interested. I have been running and loving boats for thirty years, building them for the last six years just makes the feelings stronger. I am extremely pumped to see the end of the tunnel on this build, even if it takes a couple more years to really finish. One needs to be committed to take on a boat building project, but the reward for me is well worth the commitment.

I can't wait to post pics of the next milestone on the Biscayne!

Respectfully,

Keith Miller

I guess I'll have to fess up and cut in the engine hatch!

Looks amazing, very inspiring! What type of wood have you used for the covering boards?

All of the exterior lumber is genuine mahogany. The covering boards are stained ebony the rest of the deck is 2 parts Chris Craft red and one part mahogany brown.

Ah I see, it looks really nice. The grain seems to show through really well even with the dark stain on there!
