    offshore - incredible build, love the choices you made. You may have said somewhere previously how you plan to use her, but for such a large hull with that HUGE dance floor I always assumed fishing was the mission. So it’s interesting to see a swim platform on her. I don’t fish so she’s the ultimate dream boat for me.

    So what would you change, if you built a second boat?

    Thanks for keeping us updated over the last couple of years. Im sure you learned a heck of a lot about boat building during your build. Appreciate all the pictures and good luck in whatever you decide to do.

    Thanks for all the kind words. It’s too early to tell what I would change. I will keep you all posted. If I sell her, o will build again as soon as a spot opens. Love the process!

    Where is it docked? Would love to take a look at it. Not to buy!
    I live on Deer Isle not to far from Wesmac.

    Ps. There is 35 Duffy just born last week.

    I believe it was Esposito’s Welding across the street from Wesmac. It’s powder coated
