Have been working quitely away on the 140 and getting up to the finishing stages now.
Just need to finish the flaps and hinges ,put in all the cabin glazing and then start on the first of the under coats.
So far everything is shaping up very well and I am pleased with the results.

My wife and I had a small break in august with a trip to Rarotonga in the Cook Islands. The Island is 3.5 hrs from new Zealand which is around 3500kms by air.
We spent 7 days there and the weather was just fantastic all the time. 29deg c during the day and 25 c at night. the water was about 25c most of the time so swimming and snorkeling was the main thing to do every day.
We did a glass bottom boat day trip which included a good time in the water snorkelling amounst the tropical fish and I mean heaps of them. If you just lay in the water with your gear on and looked down towards the bottom the fish would just swim all over your hands and body.An island lunch on the beach was later in the day with a good bit of entertainment by the crew.
A cultural night and dinner was really worth going to .
Most of our time was then spent just exploring the Island and mixing with the local population with was really good.
Would I go back again? most definately as it is a very good way to just have time out ,and we just loved the island way of life.
