I'm wonderin if there's a photo out there of a " pusker boat" (pusher boat?) with a wheelhouse on it...it's the closest looking boat to what I've built I'm sureand these photos don't show any...
P.s.thanks for the shot I've been contemplating some protection for the prop ...
P.p.s. Can't upload a photo on my iPhone so I'll post some tomorrow ...just cut out the windows and doorway tonight and it kind of came to life alot more...the wheelhouse still looks kind of tall bu in scale it's only6'4" so I think I'm pushing it already!...
