  • Forgot to ask; what is the OD of the tail cone rear bearing. I'll modify the mould so that it just slips in - or cast it in place.

                  • Five sets already! I'm two hulls behind - better get moving. Those castings look great. I particularly like the sail.

                      I cast metal today, pal.

                      I'll be ready to ship early next week. Then it's back to Nautilus Drydock work. Vacations over!

                        • I am constantly amazed at your ability to make something out of nothing. Looking at those props simpley confirms that although I know HOW to do it, I could never actually make it happen. I'll get a bunch of hulls off to you next week.

                            Yeah, yeah. I'm wonderful.

                            Give me the address of your friends/victims, I'll add in the fittings and get the kits off to them. How many fittings kits can I send you, pal?
