Made this for the Captain of a boat with the same name that I fish on. Used Purpleheart and Pine.

Is it for the boat or something for his home. It looks great.

WayneC actually it was intended for his boat, but he told me immeadiately that it was going to be hung in his office at home! If I had known that it would have been finished with another couple coats of Tung oil which I had started with and I would have left off the glossy polyurethane. The Captain David Wilson from Cape Hatteras, N.C. owns the boat with this name and it has a purple lower hull, that is why I made it out of purple heart, just before our last trip out with him this past June.

The sign is great. What is the wood behind the letters. It looks like Tiger Maple.
