Good going Barry. Those boats are super. Hope the camp ground has a lake you can sail in. You'll probably have a new home before you know it and get settled in with no problems. Good luck and keep in touch.
I moved into my camper back in '96 until I could get another home. I'm still here 18 years later and I love it. Pete

P.S. Who would possibly be disappointed that you are still alive? Does St. Pete need some design and build work for his fleet up there?
Hi Pete,
Yes, that is the Sterling 42' Corvette, full size kit. The thing is, the Sterling Motor Yacht is not the normal size, it is a 54" version, scaled up from the kit.

Cheers, Barry

Thanks, Barry. I forgot about the scale-up. Guess I should have gone back to the beginning to check. Still interested in the Corvette build -- especially the cabin exterior and interiors and what you are using for propulsion. From what I can tell from that photo, she is coming along splendidly!

Thanks Pete,
As it happens the campground does have a lake, but unfortunately all my boats are now safely packed away in storage!

As for another house, I don't want to jinx things, but we've already got an accepted offer on a new place. We just have to get past the inspection and the legal stuff.

Just got past the Inspection, one more item left to clear then back to work, unpacking this time.

Cheers, Barry
