Here are a few pictures of my latest additions on the GYT&S. Captain Ted’s is a 3 story with fishing tackle (pier fishing), restaurant and bar. The Hurricane Bar is located on the 3rd floor with the restaurant occupying the bottom floor. The 2ed floor has the bait & tackle shop with access to the fishing pier.The roof is made from a laminated copper computer chip substrate I acquired from a friend in the industry.












The 3rd floor bar doors are open. I made a Plexiglas setback to allow light to shine out at night but keep most of the dirt & dust out.



Also another new business in Jacksonville is Mike’s Boat Rental & Ammo Works. Offering a full line of fishing tackle & bait with a easy one stop shopping for your shooting needs. Beer and ice are also available for a perfect outing.

Ted,

That's great! I especially like your floating dock and bridge. Swell looking RR bridge too. Lot's of detail like the fish cleaning area. Nice job all around!

Wow! How cool is that?

Thank you for the complements on the crab shack. I worked on it on and off for the last 4 or 5 months and it is nice to finally have it out on the layout. I was surprised I didn’t get a comment on Capt Ted’s motto on the main sign (“We got da crabs!). I guess it’s a little hard to read with my poor photography.

I will get some more pictures of the GYT&S RR up latter this week. Being a non- procrastinator I have to do my taxes today, I don’t like to put things like that off till the last minute.
Best, Ted
