You are a big boy now, no need for a pop gun. I recommend something 40cal or larger with a 3.5 to 4 inch case. Makes the bad boys act hav right away :wink:
You can have your thread back now Richard :D

Now, I'm not saying anything other than not all ladies have the same tolerance for kick. Which is why my wife suggested that I needed to make sure I didn't build anything I won't enjoy shooting.

Think about it... And once you get it, remember that the coffee should be wiped off the computer quickly.

Thanks for the upgrade. 8)

Finished sanding and fairing the transom and rear deck. I have a few hundred pin holes to fill but it feels pretty good to have a complete boat again.
She is a little dirty but here are my progress pics...

Still have the stern eyes and deck cleats to install.
Planning to re-paint the entire boat.
That's it for tonight. :wink:
