when I was a lot younger I wanted a ocean master but dident have the money.What I did have was a 1966 26ft chriscraft inboard ,a sawzall,some foam coring material,and 2 old outboards I had to work off.Learned to spray imron on this project and the whole neighborhood was covered in white overspray.....excuse the pictures of pictures-digital cameras dident exist then...I flared the bow and gutted the hull,when I was done I had a 28ft rendering of a ocean master.....made lots of mistakes on this boat

another project

A little later in life I found a pacemaker that sank.Took out the sawzall and came up with this boat..35 ft long with bracket 12 feet wide and deck was as big as a dance floor.Pict of cabin cruiser is just for reference ,what a pacemaker is suppose to look like...A neighbor who has long passed away said that a pacemaker was a nice boat and my generation had no respect for old things so I named the boat generation x for a season to piss him off.....kinda miss the grumpy old fart
