FINAL SHOTS

The stack logo is finished. Some shots show the decal peeling at the top but since the picture Iíve repaired it.

The name boards have been attached and due to the arcing slope of the transom Iím not able to apply decals there with the name and hailing port. I added that to name and port plaques on the aft railing. In case you're wondering who Mary E. L. is, that's my mother's name.















THE END, THATíS ALL FOLKS.

Frank, she sure is pretty. Just one thing, your crew will not like that first step up on that ladder to the back side of the pilot house. I have not noticed that before, sorry. Bottom rung looks to be about groin height.

Thanks Carl and Mike.

Phil, letís just keep that a secret between the person who drew the plans, you and me.

Thanks Pete and Rick.

Ted, Iím 6-2 and up until a few years ago I could make it too. But now, Iím not sure my back would hold out or go out. Hitting that 3/4 century mark kind of foils your style.

Frank, Everyone has heaped lots of well deserved praise on this, I just will add that the stack has a lot of a-peel. (although you've fixed that you said)
