Default More shameless self promotion from Captain Humility

Sorry fellers nothing too contraversial from me this week.
Just a little 5'x7' piece I actually got paid for this time :shock:
This 200lb baby will be hoisted out of the water by the mayor of Norfolk Saturday to open this 36 million dollar cruise ship port near my city. As you can imagine I'm pretty excited, except I can't sleep good worrying.
Here's an article about it.

Nice! Is that stainless or is it meant to rust a little in the water? Looks like there's some copper or bronze in it too? Have fun at the ceremony!

Thanks for all your compliments dudes! Always means alot to know people like your stuff. Looks like its gonna be chilly & cloudy Saturday :eew: I really wanted the sun to hit it. It's not stainless steel, but I kinda go for that look. There's about 11 coats of automotive clear on it. My biggest fear is rust will get through after the salt water bath. This pic was before I totally finished buffing and welding.
I'll be sure to post some pics of the ceremony.
