    Thanks rigga! I can't wait to see her splash and hear her crank over for the first time... Will be something special for me. CAT has run her once on the hard, they know she is sitting and are fine with it.

    In my opinion it has the best lines and would love to see it in the water. I would think it would be very attractive for someone if it was put up for sale in it's unfinished condition.

    I like that stair structure on the back end! Great idea incorporating into the shrink wrap.

    I saw her this summer in the yard when I got a tour of the sheds with Steve. We have a 42 and have lightly considered a Super 46. They were busy, all sheds with boats in various stages. I admired your boat out in the open. She is a large presence when you pull in.

    Thanks Islander!
    The best part of the 8hr drive up there is climbing that last hill in Surry and the American flags on the side of the road leading up to the Wesmac shop then seeing her there looking all proud. It excites me everytime.
    Home stretch...

    Looking good Mike. Give me a shout one of these days. Let me know if you come back to the Ville or maybe we could hook up at the boat show in N Y C

    Love your beautiful boat and the work you have done. And I must say, every pilothouse needs a good bandsaw! :D As I'm currently shopping for same, wondering what make and model you decided on and what you think about it now, having worked with it? Many thanks.
