Taken 9 days later.












Sitting on her trailer:
The outboard motor bracket is only a couple of years old. The Chrysler outboard is probably as old as the boat but is still running like a champ.










I can't remember exactly when I made the bowsprit, but it was three or four years ago. It is bolted through the deck to a pair of oak blocks and has been as solid as a rock. It's a different look than the Com-Pac platform style sprit, but to a traditional kind of guy like me, it's more appealing.
