Way to go Hotshot. Your past the hard part now so the rest should be a piece of cake for you. Looks like you have a very good grasp of wood working and boat building. That was fast work considering you hade to actually cut out all the parts. Keep those pictures coming. Pete

I think he's refering to the hull templets....

You're going to make me wish I bid more on the kit that was just on ebay!
Love what your dad did for a display setup, very creative out-of-the-box thinking.

Enjoy your build!

It's going to be a twin screw, like pete said. the next thing I'am going to do is to sand all the frames so I can get all the high spots, so I don't have any trouble when I do the planking. Pursuit you can have a copy of the hull patterns, as soon as I make all the parts. Hotshot
