My Friend Fred has been putting this boat together for the past 3 years.
A little about Fred...he is 53 and the guy has only one good hand after wrist surgery a few years ago that left him with a bar in his wrist and cast that will probably never come off.
He can't bend his wrist and is in chronic agony due to this uncomfortable hunk of metal in his arm.
One good hand.
Ok, so without trying to write a book here, I'll just post some pics of this boat, and you will get the idea of how talented and dedicated Fred is to his craft.
The rail kit is home made.
The water lines are of his construction out of stainless lines found on the scrap pile at the company he used to work for.
The Olds emblem was hand cut with an exacto from a couple pieces of carpet...pretty kewl.
The wiring is totally killer but I don't have pictures...really custom stuff.
The glass work is all him...and his one good hand.
The boat just came back from paint... there is still a lot of pin striping and detail to be done, but you get the idea...and he still needs to make seats.
I hope to see this boat on the lake before summer ends.
