Hope your strength builds up, I'm really looking forward to your performance reports on the HMD when it finally gets splashed. I'm working on my temporary "workshop" while memorizing my HMD plans. Yoda, have you made any modifications or is yours per plan? Having worked on it for what, three years?...

Amazing what with the windscreen.

She loves London.

I put up a pic from today. As soon as the paint is done and cured I hang the motor. I will get motor hooked up and running, get the wiring done, then launch the boat with a load.

I've decided to go with the DE23. I saw a listing of a DE23 build on the builders site but there were no links or photos when I clicked on it. Anyone know of DE23 sites that I can look at ?

Many thanks..JB

Thanks, Yoda! Living on Guam, if I need things from mainland I need to be planning about two months ahead in order to have them on hand when needed. I expect I'll be soliciting your advice from time to time. Have you launched yet? No, I'm a couple of weeks away. I'm finishing outside paint. Taking ...

But you won't get home any faster. As you start running a displacement hull you can watch the bow wav...
