    Connecting the primary and secondary hull together. There is a signifigant gap on the main part the secondary hull sets on. Not sure how I messed it up, but a painted shim will fix that. As you can see, I am running out of work space. The kitchen table is next.

    Coming along beautifully. Almost done.

    Don't forget to internally brace those engine arm supports, or they'll sag!

    Very very nice.

    It really is coming along quite nicely. It's big, and that is really cool. :)

    Looks awesome! And like Zathros said, I love our work area. Mine is the dining room table. Fortunately, the kids are all still pretty short.

    Please post some pics. I would love to see your version.
    My house is the neighborhood flophouse for my teenage daughters click. I only get the dinner table during school hours.
