Great to see you're photos, looks great! I see you've been at this almost as long as me. I had a brief 20 yr hiatus while raising kids, but I'm recently back at it. I've got a long way to go to catch up to where you are! Keep up the good work!

Hi Carl,

I will be looking forward to your progress. Glad to hear of another VG 20 in the works. Time has gotten away from me as well. I figured a couple of years tops, but here we are 15 years and then some.

Got a chance to add a little more to my project. Had to wait a bit for a back order, but now I can continue.
I taped around the plexiglass to keep the silicone from getting messy. It kind of helped, but it is still a lot of work keeping everything clean.

Real happy the way the portlight went on and I think looks really sharp.

I did notice I've lost a lot of my early photos, what happened?

Checked a few old posts. The problem is that the image url refer to “normal_” images. Those have been removed due to space and software changes. When you see one of your posts with broken images just edit it and remove “normal_” from then front of the image name.
My already completed 'Lil Bit'. A Martens Goosen V12 set up to sail me to the fishing holes.
Currently working on making a Helms 24 our coastal cruiser.

Thanks Bogie,

I appreciate the compliment. Getting excited the closer I get to the finish line. Although I have ideas on other things I may tackle with upgrades later on, but first the boat needs to see the water.

I was sorry to see you sell your boat. Enjoyed reading your posts and seeing where you were taking her.

Rick
