Oh, John, you are asking the WRONG person when it comes to situations like this.

I am clueless

John... in case I have not mentioned it before.

That is one seriously big boat! I was browsing the boat designs (for the 100th time I am sure) and I was wondering what the biggest classic runabout might be. Monte Carlo.. holy toledo.. is one big beautiful lady!

Now I finally figured out why there was so much back & forth about the flip. I am going to grab a few buddies and toss over my Malahini in (hopefully) a month or less.. and hopefully outside where there is no snow. But in your case.. wow.. ya.. that turn obviously took a lot of planning and preparation.

I really admire the classic inboards and the builders who make them. Who knows if one is in my future (way way into the future).. however I would still love to ride in one like yours some day.

Bucket list thing.. maybe. Not a lot of inboard Mahogany boat builders up in Alberta!

If I had realized just how big this boat was in the beginning I would have picked a smaller one. But now that it's coming along pretty well I like it with all it's warts and builder induced errors included. It's been a real learning experince. The flip was a challenge but turned out to be fairly easy in the end.

We had a great time at G4. The boat is back in its air conditioned room but it will be a while before more work can be done. We just got our international approval from the US State Dept for our flight school and will be hopefully busy for a while. We have been working on that approval for almost 2 1/2 years. Good for business but bad for boat building.

John.

That is a LOT of boat. It was great to see it at the Gathering. I know that a lot of our guests appreciate seeing the "work in progress" boats, so that they can see what is "behind the curtains".

Congrats on the approval.

I saw that boat sitting on the trailer in the parking lot on Friday. I was amazed. I'd bet that I studied it for a good 45 minutes. It's funny that you say you didn't realize how big this design is but when I was studying it, I was thinking how much I want a big boat like that. LOL

I got stuck under the fore deck and thought I would break my leg getting out. I'm not looking forward to going back under there. 20 years younger would help.
