Let's see those BB pictures. We're talking about a NOLA trip in February. Would love to see the boat and talk. But, I have less than half a say in what we do. :roll:

I'm located in New Orleans as well and have the boat building bug....I'm curious if you finished the barrel back boat? I'm still doing my homework and wanted to see if there are any local builders in my area that would be interested in sharing their boat building knowledge, experience, and tips.
