Hi all,

It has been a while but here is Penny being hauled on the trailer ready for the ride home. These were taken last fall - it was a scorching hot day. Today though, there is 2 feet of snow on the ground, it is -20C and she looks lonely and pathetic covered with a tarp but she is finally parked in the back yard and ready for another build season hopefully. Lots of changes in my life; got married for the first time at 60 :D, instant family and step-dad of two kids, sold the cottage to my brother, bought a small house in the woods close to Ottawa which really feels like home :D but the bugs, oh the bugs...as many as where I was before :roll:

I had problems uploading the photos last year but figured it out now ! There is a ton to do still, those aluminum flat bar rub rails need rounding over at the ends, the outboard rigging, lots of outfitting, some electrical details, some Monstaliner touch-ups, windows and cushions to be made will keep me busy for a while. That said, I do not see a launching before next year or the year after :roll: :help:

She is a real beauty! Hope you get her in the water sooner than you'd hoped.

Hi Marc,

I added your new pictures to my HMD collection. A view could be used for a postcard! So nice!!

I hope summer starts early for you so you can build on!
With your 'new' family you got a pair of extra hands to help, so maybe the launch will be earlier :wink:

Hey Daniel !!

Still snacking on the cookies :D. I am anticipating seeing photos of your model and the real thing later on. The younger one is too young to help and the other has just joined the Navy...my wife did help me with the electrical and is up to it again when we have a chance. But cruising is what we fantasize about. It will be a blast.

Hope things are good with you my friend. Be good and get cracking 8)

Marc
