Gidday fellow builders

After 2000 build hours over a period of 2 years December 3rd saw the launch of my completed Monaco. A very memorable day. With thanks to Glen-l for a terrific set of plans, to previous Monaco and Riviera builders who generiously posted their build photos providing a wealth of information for first time builders like myself and to fellow Aussie builders for valuable advice and support along the way. The build has been an extrordinary experience. Jane and I are now enjoying this very beautiful boat.

When we flew our RVs (Van's Aircraft) for the first time we all had what we called the RV Grin which was pretty much permanent. I think we all have that Glen L Grin when we launch our boats for the first time. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
