    An exceptional job of renovation and updating. I recently had my own older motor cruiser rewired, and we also took pains to hide the modern breaker panels. I can testify to the electrical and woodworking ingenuity needed to bring off the illusion that it was always “just like that”.

    Classy workmanship. Refined and elegant, as befitting its owner. A lot of varnish to keep up though.

    I’m a very experienced carpenter, and to my eye, this is as good as it gets. Supreme craftsmanship, design, and forethought, with comforts beyond what most could afford or conceive. Excellence in every way. Thanks for sharing.

    Wow! I really enjoy reading about the restoration of older boats, as well as watching the videos. Since I no longer own a blue water sailboat, this series of video articles is now my link to past sailing days. Thanks so very much for providing that link. You also opened a window to the world of sailing I could previously only imagine. Please keep the features coming.
