Sanded down the boats deck today and added the first coat of new paint, we be sanding and adding at least two more coats.
The last pic is of my little brother holding the while it gets hung. I was surprised how heavy hoods are.

The back of the glass support half done, the kitchen with dura flex walls, my mom is in there too, and the back of the bar, waiting on the ss sinks, ice cold plates, once they are in we will have two full bars stations.

I know I am repeating myself but, that is the most amazing bar I have seen. I truly wish I lived closer.

That is awesome and would be perfect, if anyone knows how I could get my hands on a brass or copper (unfunctional) still I could definitely take it off your hands and turn it into the tap tower on the boat.

Holy smokes, best of luck in your venture. If this was anywhere close to me I'd be there nightly!

Lots of small stuff, finishing up some of the boat top, poured the floors and walls, etc

Got all the equipment in today, should have taken more pictures. Took a nice shot down on the bar while I was up string led ribbon. FYI the cheap LEDs on amazon are unbelievable for bars. We installed the LEDs on the bottom of the glass panels edge facing into the glass, so they make the whole glass glow. We are also using them to light up the wood. I will take pics when it is all lite up.
