Boat looks so much better with the tubes back on! Looks like you should be out pretty soon.

The clock is ticking away

I don't know why I set these unrealistic deadlines, today is Wednesday and I was supposed to have three dash panels but received only one, the powdercoater I am useing swears he will have the other two ready by midday tomorrow, he better! Just a couple of pics today a shot of the main console on Tuesday and another of it tonight, so there has been progress. I am wondering if I can get it done THIS weekend, I guess last weekend was a little unrealistic. Oh, took a shot of the bilge without the catwalk, I will be getting that powdercoated too, it should look pretty good. Later, Pathalla

An empty driveway Monday night...

This picture tells volumes, after spending half the day Saturday putting in sidewalks at the homestead (4 yards concrete) myself and a drowsy apprentice set out for Catawba Island at 4:30 pm. Pics of the Dad and (eager would be an understatement) new crew who has NEVER been on War Machine, this could prove interesting... Finally arrived at Anchors Away marina on Catawba and I just had to kick back with some food and a couple of cold drinks. Pics of Ray, Carol (British Lass) and Rachel, my daughter. Well we did not get out til Sunday due to me having to doublecheck everything and still we had problems... One engine started but did not want to stay running, turned out one of my two year old batteries is shot.. went out to the beach initially and then came back in on one motor. Replaced the battery and took her back out for about a Twenty mile run on the lake including a stop at West Bay Inn on Kellys Island to watch the sunset.. Came back about twenty minutes before dark and
I sat Rachel up on my lap, Belted her in and proceeded to let her pilot the boat under my immediate supervision. I am proud to say my Nine year old daughter was up to the task and did very well on cruise and in the channel (no wake) operating a Five hundred horsepower 31 ft. inflatable (very little imput from Dad) like it was child's play... which is exactly what it was! She has not stopped talking about that ride for the last two days!! All the hours of sweat and labor I have put into this boat was fair trade for the expression on my little girl's face Sunday, I have done well!

Hi! Pathalla! Your boat is very beautiful! And I'm inspired your boat for doing my boat. And I have some questions for you. I wonder What the stuff do you make use of for console and railing? Stainless steel or ferrous metal?

Cod, there will be more photos after Saturday, I promise. Just getting it in and fulfilling the boat ride obligation (I had promised my daughter) kept me from even thinking about pics last weekend. I will be posting lots of pictures of boats, people and places on a new thread I will be starting shortly.
