    Decided it was time for the grey paint to exit, so i sanded the stb side until the sander gave up the ghost.







    I made all new bolts for the stem and fitted them, filled the holes and sanded it all up.

    I think she should be called Rumrunner.
    The definition of stupid has got to be the belief that more guns will negate the bloodshed done with guns.

    Wow!!!!!! Gorgeous!!! You are to be commended (for all the work AND for recognizing that is what she was when you brought her in)
    Now we need some interior shots too.

    The boat looks fantastic, and a sleeper to boot.

    Great looking job!
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    The removal of last centuries detritus on top is truly awesome!
    What a transformation, especially considering the as found state wasn't as bad as most of the rest of the classic launches.
