The Monaco is absolutley BEAUTIFUL!!!!! You should be very proud....She should last a long time. The best part of building your self is when someone looks at it and comments, you can say "I Did It"....Congrats, again....Dwain the Ski King.......

Launched the boat on april 28th, had around twenty family and friends on hand. Rides for all and had a great day. I updated the pictures on glen-l site and also posted a few more at this link- no need to sign in just click on the album. ... share&Ux=0

I hope that rope in your garage is strong!! I don't think I could be so brave as to hang my boat from it! :shock: :lol:

The rope was rated at four times the weight of the boat, but it was still very nerve wracking to see it hanging in the air like that. I was very relieved to get it on the trailer.

Very Nice... (I hope that you don't mind that I've scooped the picture to be my new inspirational screensaver)

I checked the forum yesterday and noticed your update. My wife was there with me when I pulled up your pictures and her first words were, "will yours look that good?" So as not to put anymore pressure on me, I promptly said probably not. Anyway, that is one nice looking boat.
