Custom metal piece on bow
by: Kat B

I would like to add a metal piece to protect my bow and keel on a wooden 1953 Reindell.

How, who, or where did you find the metal piece for your bow/keel?

I have been looking for about a year now for the perfect size and model for my runabout and your journal has helped me decide finally!

You have an amazingly pretty boat for sure.

I had one question though, do you know a rough estimate how much your entire project cost?

Also how much did the veneer cost by itself and the motor by itself?

Great job on your Sandy Point Runabout.

It's inspired me to build one for myself.

Thanks for the step by step on Boat Shed.

She is a beautiful boat Dennis, something to be really proud of.

If those two bonny girls are yours I’ll bet that they are proud of their dad.
