Matt, Please consider "Dueclaws", a 40' Flat Deck Jaguar.

The total project is well documented VIA the Jaguar Forum. I'm sure there is much more supporting information available.

Another similar candidate, Hot Pursuit. Well documented by a skilled individual.

Both of those successful, Ex-Race Boats deserve recognition !!

This reminds of why I used to read "Hot Boat" and the likes. Always liked the how-to and project build right ups.

Be cool to do writeups on how unique models came to be - mystic, statement, RF's new models, etc.

Way to think outside the box Matt. I would offer my projects but boats will probably be obsolete by the time mine are done. lol

Any resoration feature would not be complete without a Lip-Ship Cigarette; the 24 Firefox that was recently completed is beyond compare and has a great story behind it as well. There are many other Lip-Ships to choose from and Phil will start an updating project on my new to me 2004 Gladiator after the boat show run is completed.

starts with "how to install an enclosed head in a Gladiator....."

just kidding....


Any of Phil's redos are spectacular. I really liked that straight bottom gun redo.

You'll see...but will be done in phases as I don't want the boat out of commission for too long.

Default Restoration/Project Story Update

All,

I spent the early part of today responding to your suggestions for restoration/upgrade stories. Most of you should have received an email from me.

One reminder: If you did receive an email from me, please do not respond here or via private messaging on offshoreonly.com. The mail server/service here is too cumbersome, and doesn't have the bandwidth, for the volume of email I will have to deal with for this project and others for offshoreonly. com.

So please use the email address I sent in my email for correspondence going forward.

If you did not receive an email from me, it doesn't mean your suggestion didn't have merit or that I won't pursue it at some time. However, the people who have projects currently underway or recently finished and have not already been featured on this site are my first priority. I want to do the best job possible in bringing you fresh restoration/upgrade projects.

Thank you all for you patience. This is a substantial job and, as I said in my email to those of you who received one, I have to be organized and methodical or it will swallow me whole.

Please keep the restoration/project story ideas coming. Best,

Matt
