This baby just needs gear

Hi all, I just wanted to post some pics of this new baby that was given to me by Socal Bill. i went with a simple red white speed scheme as I don't have any skills like Henry V. my next couple of planes I will have his expert tutolidge when it is time. This plane will be in the 112-120oz. A true Fermin Sled. Hopefully I am doing this plane justice. It is a sweet mold. Hopefully the winds pick up in the near future. I won't maiden unless we have at least 25mph.

Henry, don't be silly, he looks in between stripes! Actually, knowing Dan, it's probably one of those Rose Parade float set ups...the driver lays down underneath the chassis somehow, hidden from view, looking out through a ventilation screen of some kind! The problem is however, he can't see how close he's getting to the ocean!!!
