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

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
