I really wish Ray was my next door neighbor! 






You underestimate the noise Nick and Charlie and I can make ;-)

I wish you both were my neighbors...But you'd regret it..

I forgot to give Charlie credit for the cutwater patch design, I was headed to just reproduce the original factory design of this which has just the 2" wide cutwater lapping over the center plate on the bottom of the hull and Charlie suggested the wide tapered design instead. This put the 1/8" thick patch out into new un-mangled sheeting where the new rivets would be. Thanks Charlie!
By the way, that made it a lot harder to produce, Thanks Charlie     ;-)

Super nice Ray, Charlie and Nick.  Lots of man hours building up fast.

The shop where I buy Aluminum sheeting has a 12 foot shear and brake, they cut and bent the stringers already, they are taped together at the ends with blue masking tape in the photo under the saw horses.

Looks great Ray, Nick and Charlie!  I'm looking forward to seeing how the stringers are fabricated.  I'm guessing that you don't have a brake that long stashed in the shop someplace. :)
