Will it......well, you all know what I mean.
No, what do you mean. Like WILL IT be the best looking boat on the lake?

Yes, easily. You have nothing to worry about there. :D

THIS lake, I am sure of that! Unless you love fiberglass, because that's all that's there!

Brad, I've been following your build closely for a long time now and your work has been awe inspiring. I'm in the middle of a Tahoe 23 build (just finishing up the false transom) and there hasn't been a step along the way I haven't looked to your build for both inspiration and direction. Well done on all accounts. Good luck on the Sept 1 launch. :D

Donn

Great job Brad! And you say you did it yourself!

Best of luck with the launch.

I'm sure you're well paid working in whatever profession that you work in; otherwise, looks like you're all ready to go into professional upholstery. What a fantastic job!

You're going to get asked over and over who did your upholstery.

Thank you all so much for the kind words! I have been able to move the date to tomorrow so we will soon see how everything goes. I am "officially" done, but we know we are never "officially" done. :lol:
