Annual boat make over Part II

The project is coming along nicely although it's way more work than I anticipated.

Transom build is done ready to mount engine bracket.

Engine has been re-mounted. Now to re-wrap the boat with fresh graphics. This shows a 25' adhesive graphic print taped up for placement prior to application.

We'll get the wrap applied next week, then fresh bottom paint and then back to Homosassa!

    That sir... Is just bad assedness(it's a word I promise!) at it's finest!!!! never thought about some of those touches with the starboard. If you don't mind me asking, what did the wrap run you?

    Thanks for the complement. The wrap cost me the material and labor, I own the graphics shop. :)

    Yes starboard is great stuff as long as your are not doing anything structural with it.
