    Way safer to x-ray a billet/forged steel rudder than guess how your cast alumimium skeg is doing

    Default Update

    The boat has been de-rigged and the White Paint has been removed. Craig Selvidge picked up the boat from Sea-Way last week and it is in his shop at Lincoln City, Or. Quite a fitting place for it to be finished - given that LC is arguably the fastest water in the country! Craig does outstanding work - I am sure some folks can chime in on that. He is going to take a bunch of photos and track the progress on the boat. Craig also does powdercoating - so all the rigging parts also went with him. Dewey Anderson is doing glass repairs on the back cowling and the motor cowling - basicially making them new. Corky Peterson, who builds custom trailers for most of the inboarders, is building a custom trailer for the boat. When this boat is done it will be as good or better than new.

    Knowing Craig, he will want the first set of passes when it is done. He is known for adding a few MPH's just getting into the boat...........

    Default Some Photos

    Here are some pictures of the boat at Craig Selvidge's place. The parts on the hangers are in the process of getting powdercoated - they all go on the boat.
