This series of photographs, which we hope will grow along with the vessel, has been provided by Mac, the builder of this boat. Mac is an experienced trawler man and very computer literate These photo's are taken off a CD Mac sent us with hundreds of pictures. Mac got into the habit of taking photos every week end. Here we can only show some of them. It's always good to work with a man of Mac's experience
