Damit! I want a Seaview! Moveis version. I can still remember that summer day in Marin country when it first opened and watching it on the big screen. Got my blood for subs going for sure.

What do I have to do? Scratch one?

David. Excellent work!

Need a CAD file Steve? If Hollyweird does do a remake, you'll be well positioned with a Lightwave file....

As promised, some pics of my PARCHE (a STURGEON conversion...).

Well I'll put it this way. If you do that I can have the CNC machine cut it. It would save weeks of time even at my speed. I would still have to glass it, preen it and I could get David to do the sail and appendages. Since he knows that boat like the back of his hand it would make the most sense.

I'd produce the hull and he would produce the appendages, sail and pump jets. The only big question is....copywrite. Can we legally sell the boat. Would Fox want a cut and would they even consider letting us have license to do so.

David would know the answers well to that question. Or do I just sell enough to friends to pay for our time?

Would anyone here be interested? Also David would have to make a custom WTC for it. It should be a big boat. No?

You know... David has a super detail sail for the Seaview ALREADY MADE!!
The Canadians are not afraid to make one (ducking for cover)
It does look bitchen live and in person at the pond.
Oh god, so many boats, so little time....

Wayne,

I know but if we can conspire a bit here and divide up the work between 2-3 people. We can all have them and within less time. Just a thought. I can only average a boat every 2 months or so.

Delta next. 571 on top of that. Then the Seaview. Perhaps a IXC or XXVI?

Steve

Merriman? Where the hell are you? Oh working in the shop! Sorry. Comment when you can.
