Hey Jason, thanks for the good wishes. Too bad your in Maine, otherwise we'd be fishing next weekend together on her. We can fish some of those 20 mile drops we're not allowed to talk about.
So far so good, the boat has performed flawlessly on its recent voyages. I've even grown to like that Yanmar, its quieter then the Cummins-Mercs I had, smooth, powerful and efficient.
More pics will come soon, the teak on her is actually in excellent shape. The former owner NEVER fished her and kept her in excellent shape. Next spring with the boat out of the water I'll give the teak a light 220 grit sanding and then overcoat all of it with some clear imron or awlgrip.
The next project is a new enclosure, but thats in the works as we speak. I also need to mounth my Loran, add a rocket launcher and some rod holders (she only came with two !)
Its bad luck to change a boats name so I think I'll keep the name, plus I kinda like the name; Samantha. When the CG documentaion comes through I will change the hailing port.
