Your upholstery work is impressive--have you done this before? Beautiful work all around!

Really really nice Jamie. I think for some of us at least the technical side of this is less intimidating that the artistic side. You definitely have a handle on both. Congrats on very fine work.

Thanks Carl and Gayle,

I have done some upholstery work before but this is my first time doing folded pleats. (Hidden stitching)

Carl,

I like attention to detail and being creative.

Man oh man, video just blows away photos when it comes to larger objects. It's so hard to convey the beautiful lines of these boats using still photos but with a short video (and the accompanying sound of course) it just pops right out at you. Looks and sounds wonderful Jamie

Well tomorrow is it, Aussie Belle will be getting launch number two.

This time it will be with a naming ceremony. Nice bottle of champagne cold and ready!

Should be able to post some video of on the water and in motion tomorrow night.
