  • Dammit, Arne,I suggest you just quit your job, and rebuild everybody's boat on the Forum. Would be a nice vocation, and would be employment for life!

    • Thanks Dave. Right now I want to be done with boat building and dedicate my life to fishing!

          • Wow, un-believably awesome! I am truly amazed of the talent our family on this forum have. Arne, your boat is incredible! I have no idea what you do, or did for a living, but I am saddened by the worth society puts on people that can create and produce works of art like you have done. My neighbor makes stupid money and can't even change the light bulbs in his Beamer. I think the US is upside down in the value It puts on those of us that works with our hands.
            all in all, this is truly an amazing boat you have built with your bare hands! Kudos.

                I hardly would use those words to describe you Arne. Your talent and abilities would not be found on a truly dumb person. We need more of these "dumb construction workers" in this world.

                        • Where's the bow pillar for the trailer? Not very safe to tow it that way. Looks amassing.

                          • A very nice addition to the boating world, just beautiful looking. Bet you're a happy man too.

                              • I'm going to finish setting up the trailer this coming weekend and then take the boat back off and put it on stands so I can put another coat on the bottom since it's a little rough from over spray. Next, I need to build the kicker bracket and radar arch. Other than that it's just some minor details like mounting seats, a little bit of wiring and some touch up here and there.
