Start to Finish Site Index

A little over two years has been spent in bringing about Jim's "Picnic Boat". It all began on January 17, 2002 after a 2 hour run from Stuart, FL down to Cracker Boy Boat works in Riviera Beach, FL where the preliminary work was to be done.

Now that the project is in it's final phases, I'll start, (slowly but surely), building Jim's website that will carry you through the whole process. I won't spend a lot of time explaining techniques and the site will be mostly an image collection. So far, I has amassed over 1,400 images, of which only a very small amount will be used here.

Editing and fitting these images into a progressive manner will take some time, so be patient...

Best regards,
