    Well done Rob!!

    Sorry I just got around to reading this in it's entirety. But you've got a beautiful boat coming along there regarding a personal historic subject for me. Not only for her lineage that lead to todays modern Commissioned Submarine in the US NAVY, but the fact sea trials and training for her crew took place at Holland Torpedo Boat Station in New Suffolk, NY, only about 40 minutes from where I lived on Long Island. I learned to sail and spent quite a bit of time in Greater/Little Peconic Bay and the north side of Robins Island where that activity took place. Water was only about 40-50' deep SW of Buoy R20 off of Little Hogs Neck/Nassau Point. Ray Mason and I attended the 100th Anniversary of the US Sub Force there back in '01.

    About a 5 hour trip east to Gardeners Bay where the water got deeper for 75' dives.

    What a piece of history!!

    Keep us informed including sea trails! AND BRING HER TO 2023 SUBFEST!!
    Thank you, Ed,

    I really appreciate the compliment! Thats great that you lived not far from some of the Hollands history and sailed boats in the very water that the crews of the Holland trained! Thank you for posting up the Wikipedia info site on the Holland!

    My new passion is trying to find, and 3D print and build up as many of these older 1800's and 1900's boats as I can! Thanks again Ed, I really appreciate your input!

    I still have some detail finishing to do to the antennas, top of the main walking deck, some of the deck accessories, the chain, and the brass vent piping area around the stern, and some other minor detail work.

    After that I will apply the matt clear coat over the entire boat and that will bring this build to a close!

    Great idea Romel,

    But I don't think I want to take it that far for now. It could happen may be someday!? :-))

    The lower portion of the hull will be CHARCOAL & the upper portion will be the AGED GREY! Not sure what look yet! After ALL the finish work is complete there will be a final coat of the MATT CLEAR!

    After this finish work is complete, I will take photos and a video of the completed boat!

    The next thing to do is to install all the components on all the trays and do the wiring!

    Gantu,

    I of course purchase the acrylic WTC, but all the component bulkheads, trays, and the end caps I design myself using TinkerCad for the design work, Some of the ideas and parts I get off of Thingiverse! I then do the 3D printing!

    Hi Gantu,

    I am not clear on what you mean by tech racks!? Are you referring to the WTC inner bulk heads?
