Trying to get as much finished as possible before the Meteor arrives and takes my work space up.

I got the new seat supports fabricated and installed.

The stringer stiffeners fabricated and installed.

The seat back fabricated and in place and ready to rivet.

Dan is coming up tomorrow and is going to buck the seat rivets and we are going to do a little tuning on his Vagabond.

My good friend Nick came up today and bucked 244 rivets for me, we are making progress!
The front deck is finished, we got the front bulkheads in and 500 pounds of flotation installed.

Good work Charlie,  that turned out really nice!   If you ever need any help with your addiction like getting away from your  Rocket because your too close to the influence and might slip back a step or two in the program let me know I can store it here for you,  just sayin.....

Ray have you ever casted any aluminum before? 






No, I was responsible for leading the design team for Manganese steel castings for special track work for the railroads and spent a LOT of time in steel foundries and pattern shops all over the world.
I don’t really have much desire to do any kind of casting now  ;-)
