No, I didn't take any photos. But my Doctor friend who sold us the boat took one at the marina. He said he would email it to me.

It has a 70 Evinrude and a smaller 6 hp kicker. I will say it ran really nicely coming back over yesterday.

That Evinrude is a good engine, is it a 4 or 2 cycle?

It's an older 2 stroke, but has always been in the care of a boat mechanic.

They are some good motors for sure, the only thing I have against the 2 cycles is they burn more gas than the 4 cycles, that is what I have been told. I hope you get many years use from it buddy.

Are you going to sell one of your other boats?

Mr. Keith, I feel as if I know you already since I have been reading with Jim for a long while now. You do some of the most beautiful work that we have ever seen, and your home is absolutely awesome.

Thanks nanny...I'm just trying to get a little something together to help out scoggy with some wood bending. Should be on with that soon.

Just caught your post on your thread.

Will this be plain glass or are you going with something else?

Keith, I go for eye surgery tomorrow, so after that will only be able to see 'half' your work on site, but that seems to be 'double' what others are doing, so all is good ==8^) My wife says it should be no different since she says I am 'half blind" all the time! No Van sightings yet, but now they seem to pop out everywhere! I am looking forward to see your new boat..is it 'tin', how long,..because with the power and size, might just be a duplicate of mine! Twenty to 25 cms 0f snow today/tonight, so might be time to 'lock' in the hubs, and put truck into 4 High, and have some 'fun'!

Let's hope that is successful.

The boat is a K&C f/g runabout. I think it/s 16 1/2', Evinrude 70 & 6 hp kicker. Not in bad shape, but with my luck I can probably fix that quickly!
