I am finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and expect to get the boat wet sometime this week. Probably mid-week or coming weekend in Whittier. Been a long haul and pretty much non-stop work ( I am impatient) and countless dollars into this project. 45 days since getting delivery from welding completion at Glacier Craft on April 12, 2012 and it is basically ready to use. Many thanks to friends who have helped and patience from my family that I have not seen in the last 45 days but for minutes at a time.
At this point, the only items left are minor adjustments and calibration. EZ anchor puller needs gaskets and seals installed and cowling to be picked up with new paint-job from a buddy. This is very picture-heavy.
Credit also goes to a special friend, Sharon at Bandi Signs for the graphics.
