Love it!

Nugent - as boater with no handy skills at all, I absolutely love watch your build threads take place at this amazing pace!

Keep the pictures coming - great relief from long days at work away from boats

I heard a story once about a Grand Prix driver. Whilst practicing his pit crew hung a sign out with the word "Slow" on it.
So he went faster on the next lap.
The next time past the pits again the sign was hung out with the word "Slow" on it, so he tried even harder.
Coming past the pits again he could not believe his eyes when the same sign was hung out. So he came into the pits and let them know that he was going as fast as he could.
The pit crew had been concerned that he was going too fast and that it would end in tears.
Sort of reminds me of you, Ed, except the bit about tears
Good luck with the build
