That cut off transom panel would make a really cool"Wall art" piece!

It would. I am actually planning on using the portion above the dive platform. I like keeping as much of the old school as possible. Has really nice curve in both directions.

Nice, build on! Wee bit drastic if you are just trying to rename it... :-)

It was actually easier to cut that transom off then it would be to get that name off I bet. Classic!
