Yeah, what rick said. I have had a PC 5" R.O. sander and after almost 10 years of heavy abuse it is finally about to give in. Someone gave me a dewalt, and it is fine too. You will difinately want the R.O. sander for your build - they are the round ones.

Why did you have to take in all the invoices, and why would you only take in those reciepts mentioned? I am curious as to the registration process of these boats in Fl. Thanks.

Why the discrepancy? Do homebuilders tend to add more weight?
