      I know this is the SSRN SEAVIEW, but what get's me is that it could be playing out like the USOS SEAVIEW in the movie as she begins to evade the UN SKIPJACKS by heading deep. awesome photo worthy of your Windows background!

              That was a long, long time ago. I forgot his name. Don't know what became of that model. I remember my consultations with you at the time being a big help.

                I spent the better part of an afternoon sanding and filling seams, chips and this @#^$%^& "gel coat from hell" while applying the first of many coats of primer. While the primer was curing I redirected my attention to the bow by performing more sanding and removing the flood lights, the god awful red windows and blending the seams on the hull once again. It seems like every time I correct one flaw or mistake I encounter another. For example, one of the light bezels is missing and the replacement lens that I ordered from Dennis are significantly too large. I cant separate the front flood light and may have to look for a replacement AND there is a three inch split along the upper/lower margin of the portside "dive plane"? This was revealed when I started sanding and cleaning up the outer hull. My plan is to do away with the screws that secure the FS bay door with rare earth magnets and to fabricate some semblance of a FS bay compartment.
