    BTW Bob, once again, I open a thread and find myself on the edge of my seat, learning from you. If I haven't thanked you for that generosity lately, kick me.

    Coolboats to admire

    I'm surprised no one else picked up on this nomination. Agreed! The Shields (like the IOD) is a great boat. I owned hull #54 which. like the #53 pictured, was built by Chris Craft and had a reputation for being 'light'. I loved the boat and wish I hadn't sold it. Another boat I saw but was too late to return to the States to buy fast enough was called BIJOU, I believe, A modern 40' meter boat built in Scandina (might have been Germany, come to think of it) of fiberglass and mahagony that was listed in Annapolis in 1999. Ahhh, the ones tat get away!

    Congrat's on reaching this milestone, Kim. Having a sailboat and not a canoe means the end is in sight! She's looking fine.

    KDH - forget the 'Class A' uniform. Go straight to formal mess dress at the helm.

    It's been a while since I checked in here. Great work, FOP! Having taken 2.5 years to get through my own full refit, I can appreciate the emotional milestones of completing this job. Completion of paint is a HUGE boost as she suddenly looks like she'll float again! Replacing hardware becomes a sprint forward in progress. Enjoy!
  9. A bad day of sailing beats just about any good day working from the 'virtual office'or sitting in an airine seat.

    I too am enjoying this thread! For what it's worth, I can imagine how hard it is to stay motivated when the work gets slow (and lonely). But she'll be the project of a lifetime and well worth it when she takes you safely on her second adventure! My present project is the refit of an aluminum boat so this is all quite special. Keep it up!
