Better issue sunglasses! That finish may blind someone. :lol:

The best part about a manual screwdriver is not needing to remember if you left it in reverse.

Completion is but one step in the process and not one bit more important than the others.

That is one fine looking boat. I hope that mine turns out looking good as yours. Fantastic job on the new look. I wish we could all get the great results the first time we do something.

You know something Roberta: I now know what my son feels like! (Youtube Macdonalds dollar camp....I think it is the second video down with the picture of a smiling girl)...My son is the one coming out of the trailer, he also gets his butt handed to him by that girl in horseshoes...

well, everytime I get on here and I see the quality of your work I just know that you have kicked my a$$ even before I have begun...it is somewhat humbling to know that I probably cannot even come close to the product you have been turning out!

If you don't mind, and in order to preserve my ego, I am going to attribute your marvelous success to the quality of your tools. Hey, it makes me feel better ok!!!!!! :lol: :lol: :P

Damn woman, YOU ARE GOOD! (That statement has never flowed from these lips yet been so dang serious! :P )

I don't know how proud your husband is, but I sure am proud of you! :P :P :P :P

Thanks again, everyone!!! This sight has been my inspiration and many of the skills I have I have learned from people on this forum. I just hope I can give back at half as much.

Hi Roberta, Where will you be at the Boat Show? My daughter and I are going on Monday (1/21/13) afternoon and would enjoy meeting you and checking out your stunning boat!

Thanks, Chris

Hi Chris,

I'll be with the Glacier Lakes ACBS display with the Antique Boats. I think we are on the back wall about in the middle. I plan on being there at least 'til about 6pm.

Hey Roberta, I just checked and see I haven't been on here since Nov. Are you really going to put that back into the water? It's now one of those trailer queen show boats and it was a beauty before you started this.
