How cool, results of the hard work and tireless hours toiling away on all those pesky details to bring these boats to float and perform.

Rory - WOW, thank you so much for allowing all of us to experience you excitement of joining your grandfather's Nomad and your Sea Knight together during the last few days. If only we could bottle up all of that emotion that ran thru your veins!!!

I am absolutely thrilled for you to have this memory that you will carry the remainder of your life. Good job my man

Few things in the world measure up to the thrill and satisfaction of boating in a boat that you built.
