            If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

                    Excellent, look forward to them. It is really cool to see what people are working on and the subtle differences in building style. I learn from all of them.

                          Put in the SD shock stop, rudder and dive planes, shafts, couplings, etc. I noticed that Dave skipped the SD tie down part on his instructions. You can tell how it goes in so that won't be a problem.

                              I'm kinda confused by this paragraph: Remove the shock absorber and grind away a 1/2" wide, 3/8" deep channel down
                              between the two halves of the Sub-driver forward foundations. This channel permits disassembly of the shock-absorber components, should that every (sp) be necessary. Why is the channel necessary? The foundation is already separated at the bottom.
