Most of our boats are uncovered now and dusted off. Right???

Who's doing what to modify/ upgrade or gatherings planned this year??

I am going to do my best to get the Virage finished and plan on towing 24 hrs each way to join the frost your nuts run this fall.

Relying on others to get some BIG jobs done has been a "challenge" to say the least.

My seat frames have been at the upholsters for over a year. Nice guy 1 mile down the road. I keep saying "no rush" due to the incredible price he gave me. Unfortunately, my stuff keeps getting shoved back in the shop. I did give him a May deadline so if he ever answers his phone, I will remind him.

My motor has been getting assembled with the best of the best parts for three years now. My guy works on it as he has time. Just putting the gingerbread stuff on the block now. 2003 factory 15" 280 with a fatshaft Sportmaster.

For those of you that don't know,... I live and work in Alaska. I have a retirement home and shop in eastern Washington. We get down to visit 3-4 times a year. This is when I can work on the boat. We have tickets to go down May 22-29.

Last oct. I got the gauges and rubrail installed. This trip I plan on carpet and hull liner. Finish installing the wiring, fuse panel, gas cap, mushroom cleats, rigging hoses to motor, foot throttle, shifter, bilge pump, etc..... This is a new '91 Virage that has never been drilled!!! Every hole is carefully planned before cut.

I'm hoping when we go back in July I can mount the motor, jack plate and interior and test run.

I know how we all love pictures so here we go.

Looks awesome Ron!

My world's longest boat rebuild is is actually getting somewhere finally. Some stupid reason my phone won't let me upload pics on here but I will add a few as soon as I get home in the next day or so. I am overly excited on the state of my boat now. :D

Sorry for the delay. The notification was in my "clutter" folder.

I have a few pictures on my rebuild topic. I can't seem to upload pictures to my own stupid web site from my phone. LoL

I will make sure to add more this weekend as I'm going to pick it up and bring it home on Saturday. :mrgreen: :up:
