This is pretty much how we left it over the winter, and how it sits today, we are about to get going again and finish this thing off. We have all the kitchen equipment spec'ed out. The bar designed. We are cutting the templates for the safety glass. Over the whole boat about 6" off the deck at a height from the floor of 42" we are putting a sheet of safety glass over the entire boat and hanging of the sides about 10" so when you pull up on the stool your knees don't hit the boat. We are also doing the railing all the way around out of safety glass 48" tall with a 10" top peice of glass to put the beverages on while looking out on the lake.

We have been debating about having the tap towers be Stainless or Brass. I think brass would look better and match the boat since the towers will be right next to the mast, but the argument is that brass will be a maintenance problem with all the exposer. Any one think brass would be okay? Do they make copper towers?

More as it developes

NH has some strange distribution laws, so we have been in talks with the distributors, and have just started reaching out to the micro-brewers, even tho we can't buy direct.


Also here is some other misc photo's.

The LED light strips I found are awesome. I am going to do the whole place up with them. I figure I can light the copolow up in Red when we are closed, Blue = open and Green = beer specials are on, so the boaters can see from the water.

I'm trying to picture where you are by the background. I'm just over in the Ossipee Lake area.

What's the large building in the background? Looks like a hotel.

That is a beautiful project! I love wooden boats of all types and actually have a woodie that we keep at our lake house on Lake Chatuge, GA. I've actually seen a few other boats that were turned into bars, but those were in basements!

I live in the concord area. If you haven't already, check out White Birch in hooksett and Nepenthe in Manchester. Both great breweries.
