Terry your absolutely right, I went back thru my pink slip file and realized that the "59" was a totally different boat. The one which I retrieved form NM is in fact a "61" like you I appreciate the sculped helms. I have an extra pair of these should anyone be interested. I would put them in mine if I didn't have to disconnect everything. I think the look is wonderful.

I really like the wrap around helm panels and wish I had them in my 1963. The one that comes in the 1963 is a compromise that is rather ugly with 2 very thin strips to round out the back corners of the cabin top. I have always associated the nice panels with 59's so it shows you how much I know..

Son Jeff and I got busy this weekend, cleaned up the stringers and ribs, set everything in 5200 fast set then moved on to installing the floor which again was set in fast set and secured with galvanized screws. Let it all dry for 24 hrs and proceeded to filet all of the edges to eliminate hard corners, filled all voids with cabosil infused resin and once set installed the first taping of floor to hull. Turned out pretty nice for Jeff's 1st attempt at glass work.

This boat is taking a different path, Jeff and his significant GF have after spending the weekend on my Seafair Sedan decided that the boat is just not big enough for them and have begun their pursuit of a larger boat. At the moment they are interested in a 24" Sleekcraft IO or a Spectra V drive 24' both of which are available locally infact I used to own the Spectra.

In any event this leaves me with one more Sedan than I need. Think I will go ahead and finish Jeff's boat since it is a shell I can install the new Etec and all of its electronics as well shortening the port and & starboard bunks, port for storage cabinet and starboard to house the porta potti.

Sorry to hear Jeff is no longer interested in the Seafair. :( That is a lost member for the GOA. The New Mexico boat is nice and should be put back into use IMHO. Sounds like you intend to customize the cabin interior, perhaps to make it more suitable for something other than sleeping? You mentioned an e-tec, did you get a new one for this boat?
