Looking great, I love the looks of the 55 Vagabond, one piece front deck, full front seat, glove box doors, great model!

That first cruise, that you don't have to paddle back from, can be very satisfying.:holdbreath:

Finally got her in the water for the first time and cruised Lanier with Jennings (Bike Cop). Had no issues at all. Hardly any water came in the boat which I was excited about. Ran out a tank of gas, switched tanks and it fired right back up (excited about that too) lol. Looking forward to getting out again soon.

Marc, I meant doing a paint fill. I do it on the much smaller areas on the switch plates, but these bigger plates seemed to be more of a challenge than I wanted to try. It looks great though. Now I'm gonna' have to do mine. ;)


Rick, I was talking to Jay about these plates and his process on facebook, I going to give it a shot for the set you sent me for my boat and the oval ones you sent me for Dawn's boat. I will do hers first... It is a process I am sure that one cannot rush through... These will pair off nicely with my dash switch panel you made...

Rick, did you ever try any of the ones I made a pencil rub of?

Those Larks are beautiful motors. I keep resisting the urge to tell myself that I need Two for the Clipper.
