If you plan on a maiden voyage for your Moe before then, let me know.

I was thinking, about all the Irregular's that have crossed over the bridge in the past few years, and thought it might be nice to hold a little ceremony in their honor the next time we get together.

What do you all think about that?

Hi tom. I've been fussing around with this Edmund Fitzgerald for two years now and I'm trying to get it finished. Starting a new boat always goes pretty fast for the hull and the large assemblies. But the closer you get to the finish line the slower the work goes. All the little details go on last and take the longest to make or find online. I'm at that stage now so looking forward to the finish. Then I have three other boats from years ago to finish and two clipper ships (plastic) that have been all busted up and need to be repaired. I'm very happy that I have this hobby to take up the slack time I have since being retired. I'd go nuts with nothing to do.
How about bringing the Sheetboat Killer out next week? I just love that creation.
So what's on your work bench? Pete

I brought Project X out of mothballs last October for the Halloween weekend of the Hansen Dam Violators, did you miss it?

I can certainly float it again!

As for projects, I am just trying to repair all sorts of broken down boats, cars, and planes that are old and worn out! When I get caught up I am going to build an RC rowboat.

I know what you mean about cleaning up old models. I have a ton of them hanging from my ceiling that get all dusty and dirty that have to be cleaned.
An RC rowboat. How would that work?
Guess I missed Project X the last time but I saw it a year ago or so I think. I really like that boat.

That's a really great video of Project X Love the music. It reminds me of Water World which wasn't the greatest movie I ever saw but the visual effects were really neat. I think you need a .50 cal. machine gun on the bow with the skeleton. I have a couple if you want them.

.50 cal huh? hmmm.........

When I created Project X, I had never heard of nor seen Water World. After I introduced Project X many people made similar comments about it being made in the likeness of Water World. So I rented the movie, and yes I can see how folks would have thought that. But Water World actually had nothing to do with Project X.

I didn't think that it did . It just resembled the way the people on WW put things together for a functional machine. I don't recall seeing anything anywhere that looked like Project x. I consider your design an original and not a copy.
