When are ya taking passengers? Plus the videos on your website are kick arse! I can put the guys I work with right in the middle of the action when I play the videos when their eating lunch! Hum possible future divers? Maybe so! Thanks again for putting the landlubbers in the action. They still can't believe the fish,lobster,crabs you name it, that we can get a taste for and put it on the plate the day you want it!

Looks like after the bottom paint goes on all you need to do is add water!

Nice lookin' dive machine.What's the story?(or did I miss it?)

Is it true that you can see the end/edge of the earth from the top of that tower? It looks even taller out of the water.
And how many pounds of dirt, paint, and glass; do you think you have taken home in your cloths, skin, and lungs? I'm sure the first ride on the boat will feel better than a long shower after working on it. Maybe even better than a beer after mowing the lawn on a hot summer day.

That is one tall boat. Can't wait till it starts doing trips. I also like that air condition that I saw in one of the pictures.

i think right now i've inhaled and ingested about 27#'s of fiberglass and bottom paint. it's really the only way a captian can feel at one with his boat.

Was that bottom paint lead based?
I only ask because I prefer the taste of lead based paints.

Good recipe for King "MERCURY" Mackerel I have calls for a fine dusting of lead paint chips and grilling on high voltage power lines.

Sounds tasty. Can you share that recipe or is it a secret?

You guys should check out the paint stripper that Seahawk Paints makes. Just paint it on, let it sit, and scrape off. Takes it all the way to the gelcoat with no damage, and it is non toxic, you can get it all over yourself with no problem. You could get that whaler done in a day.

Hey Bugged, I like the Whaler. I've got the same hull in 22'. As for the kid sanding. Do him a favor and get him a real mask with the cartridge filters. That dust mask won't do much good. Ever taken one of those things off and seen the trails of dust leading into your nostrils. Only reason I say this is because I work in the asbestos field and dust masks are not industry accepted for anything. In fact, OSHA should just ban the damn things because they are that useless.
All you guys out there that sand on fiberglass or bottom paint. Spend the $25 at home depot and get a cartridge type respirator with the purple filters which indicate they are good for particulates. Basically a HEPA filter. If working with chemicals you can use a combo filter that works on vapors and particulates.
Just say no to dust masks:D They are a false sense of security.
