I have changed the album that contains the photos to public. Did it make a difference?

Wow, great job, what a project. Now that you have the molds, you should start selling those tops. Photos are now visible for me, thanks for the great write-up

Hmm. Hey honey I think I'm going to make a yacht. I guess I'll just lay one up in the yard. Yeah that is what I'll do. That was mind blower for sure. The result is better than you can buy. Great work and impressive writeup. THANK YOU!

The real question is if this top is going into production now that the hard work is done.

Holy cats that's a lot of work. 550 hours at say $30/hr that's $16,500 plus materials. Hmmm.

That's funny, I've been calling it my land yacht!
And thank-you, my hope is that someone or somebodies will be able to use the information of course.

I have not yet done any market analysis to gauge interest. ( other than this site of course) I am thinking of doing another one for the sole reason that I have so much time and money invested in the molds! I'm on the lookout for a low mileage 3500 to work on this coming winter.
