Mike, good luck with that project. I'm a little short on huge time but if you need an extra hand here and there let me know.

Looking at projects like this lets me know I'm right at home on this site...plenty of downeast nuts like me willing to take on projects.

Thanks T.J. I truly believe Downeast boat guys are a different breed...We looks at a pile of fiberglass and say...THAT AINT THAT BAD....WE CAN FIX THAT RITE UP...LOL:D

Some of us are crazy enough to think the same thing about a pile of wood:eek:

Good luck with the project, those Stanley's are great looking boats. Is she of the wet keel variety?

That boat looks tiny next to your 45. What the beam on your MDI?

I popped in for a visit this morning, Mike was the only one ginding at 9, guess the old man gets to sleep in? Or is he just smarter than us, that whole with age comes wisdom thing?? It is definitely a project, but a worthy one. It looks like the house and hull are really the focus. Decks are sound and solid. Pretty lines on her.
