Welcome aboard, she looks just great. If she was a commercial fishing craft she would have been registered? The state might hold some records. Do know her original name or number?

very nice job. got any more pictures of the engine box? is it direct vented out the sides or is it sound insulated?
also what font did you use on your numbers?
