My boat is missing the bow pieces and really want one . I think it will turn out great after I fit it and fine tune it up solid mahogany .

That looks terrific. I've done several projects like that for boats and it always seems to up the "lookability"
When you varnish it will be twice as nice.
Lots of work and effort you put in.

Done mostly with a razor blade knife, ready to install when it’s warmer. It’s a bloody job .

My brain is having a hard time processing this. You're a human 3D printer! Amazing work.

You obviously have an original aluminum bow piece to use as a model, right? I wouldn't know where to start in trying to make a copy. It's clear that you do.

Ya the aluminum one is painted burgundy. I borrow it from a guy to go get it made from sand casting but no one around here do that anymore so before I have to give it back I use it to draw the out line and cut it out on the mahogany wood.

Timing is everything. About three years ago, I sold a Delmar with a rotten floor and a hole in the hull on a junk trailer for $300. It had everything you need.
