Thats great.
You must bring it to the Gathering so that we can drool over it.

And you should do a detailed article on the wood windshield brackets

Steve,
I agree with Ken. It would be great to hear more details about how you made the wood windshield brackets.

Great looking boat!

I agree with Jimmy, I wasn't planning on doing a windshield on my squirt because the cost of metal ones is through the roof, but I have plenty of scraps that would work. Great job! Also hearing how long your registration will take, I might get the ball rolling sooner rather than later...
