Looks great Skip! Nicely done, and well deserved cudos from the show attendees!

I concur with Carl. I am not a bit surprised. Awesome workmanship. Congratulations Skip.

Looking at the pictures, I can say you definitely would have got my vote.

With all due respect, you also probably would have won the award for prettiest and happiest looking wife sitting in a wooden boat, but I don't guess that was one of the things being voted on.

Congrats! :D

Thanks for all the nice comments! I really appreciate it. BayouBengal, I think that is why I won the trophy. I had her sit in the boat all day!

Does anyone else out there feel like the boat they are building should just be cut up for firewood when compared to Skips masterpiece? That's what I'm thinking with my Monte Carlo! Strong work Skip!
