Default Hi-Gloss kudos

In another thread, I recommended Miles Marine for transporting boats with two good experiences.

Actually, as I think about it, I had a third move last winter. Out of the barn to a local specialty shop (Hi-Gloss) and back a few weeks later. So effortless, it slipped my mind.

I recommend Hi-Gloss too. They removed all fittings, got down to bare wood and 6 coats of varnish. Also did some teak work, rebuilding seats and arranged for a sub to do upholstery; scraped, sanded and painted the bottom. Routine email photos as work progressed. A small deposit to assure me a place in their busy schedule, then periodic billing as work progressed, so no huge bill all at once, and no surprises even though we added some projects as we went along. Another five stars.

Default work in progress

Mostly work in progress. It's hard in the shop to back up and get a larger view. In the storage shed, not enough light. Here's one of the sanded bow and the bow with a few coats of varnish.

Default Gotcha

The registration says "MISC"
the bow number is NH 1999 AM.
It was built in Sorrento. Does that help?
I love puzzles.
For more clarity(?) power is Motori conversion to Detroit Diesels 6 cyl, 250 hp each.
The "Angels' Share" is a quick little thing. Almost got named "Caprice", (Italian for, you got it, "Quick Little Thing", but I got over ruled for something Scotch, so, "Angel's Share".
