Very glad to see this build continue, and glad you got some time for something besides work. 8)

I agree with Fuzz, that pup looks worn out!

Great to have you back Peter and I hope your business venture is going well!

Oh that would be a cool motor. I'm sure you probably know it but the Vrod motor was a joint deal with Porsche. It's a shame Harley killed it is a great motor.
Glad to see you back on it.

Hat damn! The Death Trap is coming back to life!!!

Great to see you back. That deck is going to be one of those touches that set this bullet apart. Can’t wait to see you scare the fish out of the water with this thing!

I tried to say something but God thought I was wrong and filled my mouth with saltwater. I kept my pie hole shut after that.

Hi guys thx for the nice reply's
Today I put in the final strip on the starboard site, still have to start port site, to avoid unnecessary holes I don't want to use any fasteners, so it takes some time gluing the strips down one by one.
Next is sanding it down to a nice curve and trying to sand out the weather on the side of the hull, then filling the seams with black epoxy, sanding it again and putting on fabric from topside to chine.

That is looking good! It will be a dart on the water.
