Nicely done restoration, really like the lift.   You may have stated before, but what lake is that?

Never did state the lake but it’s callled Kalamalka in Coldstream BC Canada. The boat is basically the Emerald green like the lake. Not a coincidence. The lift is old but still good.

Thx guys I appreciate the comments as I have never took on such a project. Regarding the vents the one I had digitally printed in plastic is just not good enough, I either need to find another very good shape original or want to get a set made out of aluminium. I had been in touch with Aaron in Germany as he had sent me a video of an aluminum set that was absolutely spectacular but the guy won’t reproduce for only one set. I don’t know if anyone else wants to try and get a larger order together that might prompt him or someone else to do these. I do t know could they be cast? Rather than milled out of Billett?

beautiful boat. I really need to get back to my CVZ-18 project. But it needs to quit raining first.
