Fantastic! I wish I had some of your kind of talent and ability. About all I do with the boats in my yard is look at them.

MERRY CHRISTMAS, AGAIN

Another year gone by, how time flys - we had a lot of fun with the P-14 this summer. I took the 4 cylinder off and installed the Mark 75, not a lot faster but more smack! :D :D

Attended several vintage meets, and just went to the river here and cruised. Hey, here's what it's all about! take a kid boating today, they will never forget it!

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL ON THIS BOARD!

In February I will be building a 14 foot D mod raceboat, watch for it.

did u get the bottom straight cause most of those older boats were built with a hook to make it plane at slower speeds with less motor

It is now 2000, at 80 I still have this boat, still solid, no cracks in structure, but The spider cracks on the deck reappeared after a couple of years. Mercury Mark 75 runs flawlessly requiring only a reset of points and a back water jacket gasket replacement. We run it as often as we can get away. Just survived hurricane Sally, 16 years to the day after IVAN, previously mentioned. Boat in stronger garage this time also no flooding here.

Yes, please post a pic. Bummed to not be able to see the finished product after everyone was saying how nice it is.
