          I got as far as trimming the boat, but no time to take it to a larger body of water to check out underway performance -- that'll happen soon as I finish the paint-job. Got to get pictures off to Mr. Caswell so he can post them to the catalog.

          I just keep packing in the details and am way behind schedule -- Ellie has even started sending my plates into the shop to speed things along!

          (Who the hell told her to do THAT, Mike?!...)

          Stand-by this Bat Channel, at this Bat Time for further developments! ...

          David,

            You would not steal a wallet so don't steal people's livelihood.
            Think of that before your buy "cheap" pirated goods or download others work protected by copyright. Theft is theft.

                      Lodts of foam in there dave. Are you going with a bigger WTC for production?

                        Yeah, that might be an excellent after-market thing: cast foam pieces to fit either side of the SD.

                        Nope, that a production SD. Just like yours.

                        Take it away!

                            A bit, yes, but I like a reserve -- and remember: my boat was an ultra-thin one with less than normal topside weight.
