"Noah's Ark" ????

You have to think of the development costs... ... and the hull is only a one off... at the moment..

You have outdone yourself Toes...

I'd say you have a little more than just a one-off hull.

I look forward to the mayhem at Foss Cup 2010.

That looks really impressive, Ralph. You must feel a great sense of achievement, looking at that new hull and knowing you designed and built it completely from scratch!

It must also be a bit daunting - after all that work, and knowing that you are only half-way there.

I look forward to seeing the rest of the build as it progresses.

LOL - Kmot, the US Treasury just called. They wanted to know what software you're using. Apparently they can't make payroll this week.

Great lookin' hull toes. Looking forward to see the superstructure, & running gear.


I was at Lake Balboa a couple weeks ago and heard a story of a guy who dug a hole in his backyard, filled it with a bunch of stuff and pulled a 64" fiberglass Puffer hull out.

Me thinks there is a pair of old Dumas kort nozzles in my junk box that might have found a new home.
