Yeah that thread is great. Steve was kind enough to call me and give me some advise from what he had learned during the build. What a great guy. I'm going to take him out during the flood tides this August in search of tailing reds.

Monzi, like Snookdaddy I would never own another skiff without Seadek on the polling and casting platforms. It's the way to go for sure. I am not sold yet on using it under the gunnels.

As an update, I have been working on quotes from both Hells Bay Boatworks Service as well as Glasser Boatworks for a couple of days now and will be selecting one of them in the next couple of days. Both parties are more than qualified to do the work so I am looking forward to selecting someone in order to get the work under way. Once I finalize the quote I will be posting a final task list for the restoration with work beginning this upcoming Monday. I will keep everyone posted on my selection and will be providing frequent photos and descriptions of the progress. I can't wait.

Icarus,

Would you be interested in selling the old galvanized ramlin? I have a 1999 Whipray I bought last year that is in mint condition. Unfortunately it was a pre-ramlin era boat and sits on an easy loader. Not in any hurry but if you are getting rid of it at a reasonable price i would be very interested.

Thanks,
John
