No offense intended but, does anyone else think that looks like a piano? Bit of fishing, little music... :D

Been following your build since before I joined. Looks great!

Not me, I thought it looked like a pipe organ console! :D

I agree that it is looking great, though!

The carolina boat was built by Billy Dupree of Outer Banks Boatworks.


I know Mr. Billy. Drive by his house every day on my 3 minute commute to work. That'll be a good hull when you're done with it.

Biggerstaff, Beethoven of the Bertrams.

It won't look a bit like a piano once he dolls it up with everything.

Spent last week finishing my storage boxes and working on helm parts. Got the two parts of the helm glued together and started glassing it yesterday. The seat part is almost ready to be glassed as well. I ended up building a cooler to go between the helm chairs and built it into the structure. Will post some pictures of that soon
