These photos were taken in mid-July at the Paul Mann facility. This is a 67-footer that’s scheduled for completion sometime in 2013.

Here are a few shots of a restoration that Mann had just completed for Jennie O’Neal. The little trout boat, Bitty, was designed and built by her father-in-law, Capt. Warren O’Neal, a legendary Carolina boat builder that taught a lot of what he knew to today’s master builders. I saw a lot of pretty boats up in North Carolina, but this little Bitty trout boat won my heart. Robin Mann has one that’s nearly identical.
