Here is a shot of the propeller support fins as they came out. The plan is to cast these parts as part of the hull and as one piece with the bearings in place so that the end user wont have to knock their brains in trying to get everything lined up proper.

There have been a requests to have the kit supplied with the polar ice sail so one is getting put together. In the end you will just request which sail you want with the kit or both.

Sorry it is not my shop

Here is a shot of the props in process. The blades still require shaping.

I am pretty pleased with them as well!
I am going to have the ones for the Skate grown on a lithograph machine. Anyone ever seen that video Jay Leno did with one of these rapid prototype machines?

The average small plate Litho machine is around $50,000. If you have found one for 5K let me know. I want it!
