    Hi Keelboater,

    Will you be in the water this year? I hope to see the boat on BI this summer.

    That's the plan tashmoo. The light at the end of the tunnel is now visible, and if the motor fires up when the time comes, it won't be a train! The previous owner stopped by today and was completely blown away at the transformation. That made me feel pretty good after all of this. Fingers crossed for end of July/beginning of August.

    Dammit Keelboater.....enough is enough!!!!! Everyday After I get out of work, I head to the marina & everyday I drive past your house on the way & wonder, is this the day I'm finally going to see the shrink wrap off that Bruno? Time for the reveal already, the whole town is waiting to see it uncovered !!!!!

    I can tell you this - the fiberglass guru at Riverside did a fantastic job matching the gel coat color for me! :D

    Out from the shrink wrap and into the great outdoors. Gel coated around windows before installing them with gasket material. Visor and overhangs roughed in...........just need to fair them out a little bit before gel coating. Port side window is being relocated to avoid future shower wall inside.

    Similar lines of arches boat which I love. I’m envisioning this configuration on our flybridge right now. ;)

    Thanks guys. It's easier to just buy a boat with a visor! ;)
    OM - that window is being moved forward about 6" to avoid being in the center of a shower wall that I will eventually be constructing. It's a PITA but has to be done. Then there will be ventilation in the shower stall which will be nice.

    HOME RUN!

    That looks soo good, and I like how you opted for the clean look of fixed forward windows.

    Now that you've proved what we all knew to begin with; namely, that you've got the chops to pull this kinda stuff off, I gotta ask...

    When are you going to redo the rear of the house and make it look as good as the front? Copy mine! LOL

    Nice photo shop editing.
    even with out a front window change that cleans up the house profile nicely, less stubby looking house. I like it, I might opt for that when we can. Can you photo shop our boat?

    Funny you should mention that Arch............I do have a plan for aft part of the house for this winter o_O It's something that must be done before I can really begin to finish the interior layout. You did a nice job there! Stay tuned and thanks for the compliments.
