Looking at your work my build suddenly seems agricultural and tractor-like. Truly beautiful. All it needs is to be in the water.

Beautiful work, machinery porn at its best. This is still one of the highest quality builds on the site.

Re: GV10 Stop and Start Project

Well, maybe I’m lazy, but don’t you only need to check the welds? Creative “tipping” would let you put a much smaller amount of water in the boat (cover the weld). Just an idea. I though a test launch was being lazy. If I put water inside I need to clean and dry before I can do any more welding. I ...
