Engines going back in.

Post by Doug P » Sat May 09, 2015 10:47 am

When the engines came out, the shaft log was cut out. I do have bronze shaft logs but I do not wish to mix bronze with steel. Can another Roamer owner send me a photo of the welded in place shaft log/
Thanks

The interesting story about Seattle YC opening day and Rainier Beer is the copy writer in the ad agency was one of the original owners of Starbucks. Just a small tea shop in Pike Place Market.
The 60's and 70's were an exciting era in Seattle. The city transformed from a logging and fishing town with one main manufacturer,- Boeing, (the Lazy B) that basically shut down in the early 70's,- to a town that became the home to major world wide corporations. Starbucks, Amazon, Costco, Microsoft, Nintendo and unfortunately all the money that robs the personality of a fine city.

Finally, engines are in, hull exterior finished, now to tackle interior.
Photoshopped the name on stern...Any suggestions as to type style and colors?
