Default Epic Boat Bar

I am a homebrewer and long time lurker. I am currently working on a dream project. I am building a beach bar on the shore of Lake Winnipesaukee in NH. I see so many awesome builds on this site and always wish I had something to contribute and here is my chance. The hope is to have all the great NH microbreweries represented here.
My Dad, Brother and I started construction last fall and should be done here in the spring.
I have taken a ton of construction photos and plan to share them and more as things progress. The jewel in the middle of the gazebo is the 1904 Anona Sail boat that is being converted into a bar, draft system and all.

Enjoy.
I will do my best to keep the photos in order

What an awesome idea! Kudos to fulfilling a dream!

Looks amazing so far... Keep us posted! Do you have any microbreweries "on board" yet? Pun definitely intended.

The roof was built on the deck, and later jacked up into place, a slow and fun process.

We had to cut the side of the boat out for the bartender, and so we can add, two bartender stations, 3 bay sink, soda guns, and of course the draft system.
