Wow

Wow, sweet looking tube work. Is this stainless or aluminum? Who's making the T-Top, it looks crazy!

The towing post is so nice I guess you would not want to stain or scratch it while towing.

Keep on posting, we are doing a 11 meters Willard and it gives ideas.

Thanks.

Aluminum 1 1/2, 2 1/4 and 3" tube. A local guy we work with he does great work. We are all good scratching it up, its a work boat... But the first scratch will bring a tear to my eye. Lets see pics of the 11m. We want to do an 11M next. Where did you get yours?

Fantastic work

You are putting me to shame. I just put up the "temporary garage", so I can work through the winter on my boat. I'm suspecting this may be the first of a couple winters.

The boat looks great. You do great work. What made you go with the Suzuki's? I understand they are great, but I'm going to be hard pressed to come up with a reason to abandon the ETEC. Not a dig, just curious....

Thanks.

Thanks I cant take all the credit i have a great crew doing amazing work with me. We like suzukis we find them more reliable and are easeyer to maintain for the $. They also have great low end torque which is a must for our l ine of work. How are you comming on your avon? You replace the stringer yet?

Just bought the douglas fir stringers. I struggled on which way to go, and settled on the solid douglas fir... Since I'm starting from a completely gutted boat, I've spent alot of time drawing and throwing out drawings. I really like the look of the pure yachting rib, and I'm going to try to emulate. We'll see how it goes. I just moved the boat into a temporary garage to work this winter. I'll send some pictures soon.
