That's a beauty. Can you do without that spray rail below the water line? I'm pretty certain Calvin would not want that there.
This is going to be a sweet Christmas present for you. Are you going to have them extend the pilothouse on the starboard side or keep it stock? It will look good either way, but it may be more functional to have a full side with a sliding window for protection from the elements. Are you planning to put some windows that open? I noticed the classic rubber mount windows on the photos from the factory. I put three opening windows on my pilothouse and it gives a lot of cross breeze to cool off in the summer. I know you owned an Eastern, so you are probably well aware of this and I'm stating the obvious. Looking forward to more photos. Maybe you can post them on the commercial boat building contest.
