    It is so refreshing to see quality workmanship, where the mfg. does not cut corners.

    It's American for type, brand or style.
    Your boat looks great. Your copilot helm will be the template I use for discussing mine with Cape Island boat. The Mrs. will be a happy girl.
    Good luck with your launch and seatrial and also with a sale.

    Many thanks. Hoping I can get it home in time before the foolish trade war tariffs come into affect July 1. If not, it will seriously be for sale

    Yes. GelKote with Non skid, Awlgrip or something similar. Just curious what Wesmac uses. It looks great.

    You could motor the boat home as is, then return for additional work.

    Offshore27, do you know what the distance is from the waterline to the cockpit sole? Judging by the images I am guessing it is about 18", which should be excellent for buoyancy if the cockpit ever gets flooded.

    We launched just over a week ago. Should wrap up sea trials next week. Torn to being home to Nova Scotia or sell. Couple hot prospects. I want to build another. Absolutely love the process!!
