So exciting.  I have done a few stainless polishing projects, emphasis on small, and they were VERY labor intensive and time consuming, but I always enjoy seeing the mirror finiah gradually reveal itself.

Tuesday or Wednesday this week it’s getting welded on the boat with the rest of the parts, then hoping this coming weekend we can do a dry fit of the completed bow sprit.

It’s bolted on! Permanent! I’m so happy. Sandy from Metal by design knocked it out of the park, a piece of art with so much attention to detail. Couldn’t be happier. Exhausted from a full weekend of work but thrilled to have this completed.

It looks SOOOO sharp Antoni!!  I like how it looks like it is supposed to be that way.  So often, refits don't incorporate enough design and the upgrades look out of place.  Not the case here.  Yours looks as it should!!  Can't wait to hear how she sails on the new code zero.
