did some digging on the bullwarks forward, have some more to repair. put a new piece of the covering board in, the the first two pieces on the bullwarks, two more to go(7"X7" X 12' and 16') with a good curve and changeing angles. then need to fit the bow rollers before completeing the caprails.Al

on my scratch rebuild of the full size Lloyd B. Gore, I have filled in the bullwarks, and after two layers of glass and epoxy over the bullwaks and guard have finished up with two inches of purple heart. Now its up to the welder to fabricate new bow rollers and stem cap. This is why I hav'nt made any progress on the Inlet Rustler build. Al

Nice work there Al - quite the feat to get all the curved work to come out? Nice weather to work in though.

She's certainly the among the most 'photographed' vessels in Steveston.

You've done wonders to that boat Al.

Here's another 'oldie'.
