Day 94, K-50 Happy Talk's reveal...

After 94 days, we rolled Kettenburg 50, hull number six, "Happy Talk" out of the tent. Once we found out the owner couldn't meet his timelines or the PT Festival, we slowed down and did a little more than freshen up her topside. I'll post some pics of the topside tomorrow evening. Here are some of her reveal, as they now say...
Before (actually, a week into the process)

After:










More to come...

I've told ya before but I will say it again- Happy Talk is absolutely spectacular!!!! Love the hull color, love the natural transom and gold lettering, love that you kept the seams visible. This boat is sure to not only turn heads but induce whiplash.
