Howdy from Wyoming

#1 Post by Wyo George » Mon Dec 14, 2020 5:10 pm

Well howdy folks.

I'll try to keep my intro brief, but that's not an are I am know for excelling!

I'm a family guy with wife and three kids and for work I teach motorcycle classes, work on motorcycles, restore antique American cars and trucks and spend way too much time in a machine shop. In my spare time, which is few with three jobs, I build boats, ride motorcycles, fish and camp. I recently picked up a 1993 TMC 2021 with a 35 Mercury on it and it's in need of a complete restore. I'll be tackling that job once spring gets closer and I finish one of the boats I'm currently building. Once upon a time I owned an upholstery shop in northeast Georgia and I restored, re-decked and re-upholstered dozens of pontoons so I'll be doing all the work myself. I'm usually pretty good about posting lots of pictures on the forums and so I'll make an honest attempt at doing a good job of documenting this build.

In the meantime, it's good to be here and hopefully we can enjoy some time together chatting about boats, fish and whatever else happens across the screen.
