    the Admiral is turning into quite the seamstress
    this seat was done in the original style with the modern matching vinyl

    double duty seat...

    and easily converts to a sun lounge with the headrest on either end

    I wrote you via private message about my old weekender back in February. Mine was an' 80 but the boats look identical down to the mirrors. You are doing a great job...brings back some good memories. Keep up the good work. I wish I could find my old "Blues Bros" and give it a good face lift. If you recall some idiot had pulled out the interior - fiberglassed everything and tried to make it a fishing boat!

    Wow. That is just like my 73. Absolutly cool how you made a dud into such a swell piece of equipment. Very cool work indeed.
