The boat as it came to the shop.

Installing the cockpit roll.

The most difficult part of installing cockpit roll is the corners. Proper streching is the key to getting a smooth corner.

Almost finished and on display at the Pittsburgh Boat show. The interior was installed but the motorbox needed to be rebuilt and seat bottoms were not finsihed. Also the windshield that is on the boat is borrowed from another boat for display. A new windshield is to be made.

The new registration numbers. ( custom made water release decals) Two coats of varnish are applied over the decals to prodect the gold finsih.

The engine is installed.

Test running the boat on the beaver river. The windshield is still not installed.

At home on the Ohio River, Fall 2008. Getting ready to go on a river run with the Allegheny Chapter, A.C.B.S.
