Boathouse/Shop complete

Postby buzzerbaits » Fri Mar 08, 2019 2:01 pm

I purchased a place on Jackson lake outside Atlanta ga back in December 2018. The boathouse/shop needed attention ASAP. It has worked out just great for our small collection of Feathercraft boats and gives me a great place to start back working on many outboard's.  Some before and after shots.  [wrench.gif]

Looks like a great space for lots of fun and good work! Good job, enjoy it!

With all those Mercs it looks to me like you need a few more Feather Crafts  :arrow:

Beautiful place, I would love to have a place of my own on a lake. The boat and outboard collection are very nice as well...Rob

        Don't get me started on searching for another ship!  I just got out of Rehab from the other 15 boats I've had.  My wife would kill me if I came home with another boat. [swearing.gif]  :oops:  [helpsos.gif]

Give it a try!  You can hide a FireFly in a closet, or hang it from the ceiling.  Tell her it is a "Salesman's sample", and not a real boat!   [wrench.gif]

Great work on the boat house, Mike  It was good to talk to you today, I do believe you have room for one more boat.  How about a 13 foot Skipper and a KE-7 Lightning? [drinkingcheers.gif]
