                Very nice. Just curious, are those clevis clips on the bow planes all brass or stainless? I ask because I played around with some on my boat, once upon a time, and they immediately began to rust.

                  good question they are stainless steel . Engel did not give me any brass clevis so I will try to coat these with a clear coating to help them from not rusting or switch them out

                  thanks for the good tip by the way !

                      Very solid work! (and I can see the pics just fine, btw!).

                      Dave, you had the same issue seeing pics that I embedded in some email messages. I wonder if there is a setting in your browser that is preventing the display of images?

                              I see the pictures. They are attachments and not added in the text. For whatever that is worth.
                              In the scheme of things this, I am guessing, not high on what is important right now.
                              If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

                                Not any more, pal.

                                I just read the blast of **** you aimed at Tom Chalfant. You ignorant, unappreciative, thin skined idiot!

                                No critiques from me on your work till you offer up a multi-paragraph apology to that man, in the thread you smeared him! Do that and I may consider looking in your general direction. Till then, you're dead to me.

                                Jerk!
