Looking at the numbers made me have to see the boats ugly handles which were obviously not put there by the manufacturer. I wouldn't mind having a look at what the stock handles looked like. Maybe something can be done.



I don't want to clog up Marks thread but I would like to see photos, have you posted any photos anywhere on the forum?

This thread makes me appreciate my own Vagabond which is a year younger. The guy who restored and sold it to me gave me a photo.of what the boat looked like when he found it. It wasn't much different than Mark's. It almost makes me feel guilty to be enjoying his work given how little he was paid for his effort. It's a good thing that there are guys like Mark around willing to devote their time and their talent to bringing these boats back to life. It allows lazy slugs like myself to have something they couldn't have produced for themselves or could not have afforded to buy if the compensation for doing the work wasn't, as Mark once noted, ten cents an hour.
