Here are pictures of the finished Yoda/ Lucky Lady other than a few do dads that I ordered to finish it off like a flag. She will be off to her new home shortly, so I'm just enjoying her while she is here.

Now that's a semi non controversial transom artwork, wonder if the anti gaming fraternity will object?

'part from that, another superb rendition Mike.

Thanks dodgy & Ian, it was a bit of a challenge not to go controversial, but I'm nothing if not flexible hahahahaha. I foolishly thought using the fiberglassed hull would save a few steps by not having to build the hull, it didn't. By the time I had to build the inner frame work, trial and error, building up the front deck 1 1/2", trimming off 1/4" off the transome, it didn't make much of a difference. But it was a challenge, which is what I was after to begin with.

Here is my next venture, a Dumas 1950's Cobra. I'm planning on stretching it out a bit and maybe add a couple of inches to the length. Right now it says it measures 27" when finished, maybe I can stretch it to 29" or even 30" giving a bit more room between the cockpit and the turtle deck. But I will check the feasablility of this and whether the effort is worth the reward.

Debating on whether I want to start a build log on this or not. We'll see.

Controversy again, a Cobra on Viagra.
