That upholstery work looks amazing, Jim! Very inspirational. Very!

I'm going to have to check out those videos. Now that Joshua's Zip is finished, I need something to watch.

Hi Jimmy,

I'm in Edwardsburg, MI and have always been very interested in the Squirt design. I was wondering if I can come visit your shop and see the boat? I'm particularly interested in how you go about stretching a design... I have fairly broad availability if you'd be willing to let me check things out.

If you'd like to email me, I can be reached at rtowner8820@yahoo.com.

Thanks!
Ryan Towner

Thanks guys.

Ryan, I emailed you and you're welcome to come over and chat about boats and perhaps take a ride.

I got a some more time on the lake over the holiday weekend. Sadly we started pulling the dock out, but not completely. I did get a couple of photos of the Squirt in it's natural state...

I plan on hauling it out next weekend to display it at the Port Huron boat show on the 15th along with the AOMCI guys.

Hopefully there is a little more boating weather in Michigan.

Enjoy!

P.S. I hope you all have a good Gathering! Maybe I'll be able to make it next year.
