Well she’s all stored away for the summer, this was one of the last outings! P19 performed flawlessly, we had tons of fun on her this year even though it was a short summer, we pulled her out of the water after being in for 3 months and the bottom still looked great and no water in the bilge! The small cabin came in real handy with the grand children and when my wife wanted to get out of the sun, I have a few things to do before she gets back into the water next spring but knowing she’s all wrapped up and behind the garage with no access until spring is kinda tough.

Thanks to Jacques and everyone who contributed to this build!

Now, what next?

She's a ripper Joe!!!

Do you have any pictures of the cabin with people in there, would love to see the space occupied?

I read your whole build thread in the last few days (again), it was a great read and makes me keen to continue on with mine.

I am flipping it this weekend :lol:

Thanks mecreature!
She's trying already wade, wants to re-do the kithen, I gotta get going on something soon.

That's cool Justin, now you seen how I flipped mine, no problem. Hmm, Ripper, I like that, she doesn't have a name yet!
I looked for pictures of the cabin and I could not find any, guess you'll have to wait until spring. :)

Thanks for looking.

A successful re-launch of the P19, I got in kinda late in the season for Michigan last year so was very anxious to get her in early this year, I’m happy to report all went well!
The Yamaha fired right up on first crank and ran beautifully all weekend, in one of the pictures you can see ice coming from Lake Huron still flowing down the river, on the Lorance the water temp is reading 39°.

I’ll take some pic’s of the cabin for you this weekend Justin.

Oh, one more thing, I sold my OD16, sad and happy day all at the same time.

Glad to see you out of the ice finally!

Sold the OD? I'm thinking about selling mine too and upgrading :D

Thanks Joe, that would be awesome, I am about to start building again, looking at mixing some epoxy next week (got relatives in town this weekend).

Must be a really good feeling to be in her again?
I think my son will be at least the age of your skipper there, maybe a bit older by the time I finish my boat (and I started before he was born). My wife is pregnant again so I'll try and make some progress on the boat in the next 6 months before #2 arrives. I seriously "overestimated" the amount of work I would get done with a few small ones around. :lol:

A great looking boat, don't be shy in posting plenty of pics, I love seeing them :D

Cracker, you'd probably knock out a TW28 in a few months :wink:

Cheers

Congratulations Justin!
Here’s some pics of the cabin as promised, I hope to have cushions made for it soon.
That’s Rider in the pictures, he’s new to boating so still a little nervous about it.

When sitting in there my head hits the top of the cabin and I’m only 5’ 8” but it’s a great place for my little skippers to get out of the sun.

Hey Larry, before I sold my OD16 I made sure I had something in the backyard to replace it, so what are you thinking?
