I see that Roberta and you are in a race to see who finishes first! :D :D :D

Looking great Bill. I'm still going back and forth on AC for my boat. A part of me doesn't want to mess with it, but it does give you added flexibility that a DC only system does not have.

The lettering looks great. It's amazing what changes like lettering and color and chrome can do to to projects such as this.

I remember from model building I did earlier in my life how the project looked cool while under construction and then when painted, it took on a new coolness, but it was the addition of the insignia and trim that made it really pop.

Anyway, great work.

I don't think that Roberta and I are in a race. But, we do have a common goal. We want to have a glass of wine together in our new boats at the Gathering in September.

Bill, many RV's are 30 amp 110v. They got airconditioning, microwave ovens, TV's, etc, etc.
Will the make-up vanity station have airconditioning?? :?: :?: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Bill, I just noticed how big this boat is in the last few photos. She is going to be very comfy!

Welcome back Bill,

The doors look excellent. Put in some sleeping bags and an ice chest and you could camp in there. Then you could spend more time working on the boat because you wouldn't have to waste time walking from the house! :D :D :D :D :D

Seriously though, she's starting to look very complete. Any idea how soon you are going to splash?

I hope to have it for the Gathering in Sept. I'm starting to wonder. Lauren keeps finding things that I "Need" to do.
