    The Mastercraft made it on Discount Inboard Marine (skidim.com) calendar for 2019.

    Can't wait to see how it turns out.

    Bent and welded up a new roller bracket. I decided to try electric brakes so I ran new wires for the lights and break-away system.

    Nice metal work! Great to have them in a current. Sure wish I could weld...but then again with a wooden boat, I'd end up with a trailer load of charcoal...lol

    Nice warm sunny day in Vancouver so it was time to haul out the welder and make trailer guide poles.

    Uh-oh...pardon the sacrilegious thought. Bring on the sun block!

    Installing a tower on a Stars & Strips is a big No-No in the Mastercraft world. You can get a bimini that mount on the ski pole but hard to find.

    Installed a new Permanent magnet Gear-reduction starter and it's a lot smaller/lighter than the old style starters.

    So red that you could use Nuckinfutz for a night light!

    skidim.com to get calendars.

    Going to try a bimini top to get out of the sun... as you can see Nuckinfutz is getting red. Will need to cut a hole and make a patch for the wakeboard pole to fit thru.

    This is becoming the ultimate boat. You're not going to want to get it wet if you're not careful! LOL Beautiful craftsmanship...and now quiet!

    Added soundproofing foam to the engine box and moved (cut & weld) the fender steps to just inside of the fenders. We had to replace the wood/carpet to match the fender step.
