Looks nice, and the white will be cool in the sun.

Nice work. Looks great. Looks like you fit it in like I did. No screws. No magnets needed.

Very nice work Matt. Congratulations on finishing the upholstery. Isn't it great the amount of satisfaction that can be had from doing things like this? I like the nice clean look of your chairs. I'm still going around and around on what I want to do about this.

This little lake in Kentucky is so nice I almost don't want to post about it. We spent the weekend at Laurel River Lake. Beautiful deep clear lake with lots of coves. Even though it was the weekend and lots of boats there were lots of areas to cruise around and explore where it wasn't so rough. Or find a corner and anchor out for a while and swim. For a while on Sunday we had six adults and two kids aboard the Geronimo. Still was able to plane out relatively easily and cruise around just fine. Also, my wife made custom koozies and t-shirts with boat name and graphic. They turned out awesome and we gave some to all our friends that joined us for our getaway.

Very Nice Matt. That's what its all about. Time with family and friends on a boat you built. Brings a smile to my face almost a big as the one on yours. Cool shirts. This makes it even more special when you can share in this way. Thanks for posting.

Matt, it's easy to fill it with stuff. But we are getting better. Now that we have upholstery we don't have to carry around all sorts of assorted cushions. The area under the bow is a great place to keep pool noodles and the tube can fold up and ride under there.

Where can I find a flagpole that will fit my bow light? Glen-l doesn't carry it anymore.

Looks great Matt! We did Rough River Lake, KY this June and it was great as well, other than saturday it was very low traffic and never even saw another boat going in or out the 3 times we used the ramp, even on saturday. For a great one closer to home check out the floating cabins at Lake Patoka as well.

Matt, Very roomy. Cushions turned out great. It is nice to reap the rewards of your labor.
