1st things 1st: Congratulations on being a non-smoker! Not only are you going to be healthier, live longer, and stink less, but you are going to save a few hundred dollars a month that used to literally go up in smoke! I'm an ex-smoker, going on 18 years now.

2nd, the boat looks awesome! I love the interior woodwork, as well as the rest of the boat!

Hahaha yah I remember that day. Things got a little exciting when smoke came out from under the trunk cover. At least the rest of the boat didnt go up. it could have been worse.

BG, quitting the tobacco probably saved your life---.

I had a heart attack when I was 43, and underwent a quadruple heart bypass operation at 50, all thanks to the tobacco companies.

I'm 67 now, and amazed that I'm still above ground after all that---.

Nice build, but a bit large for my tastes---.
