    Welcome aboard Zach. I hope you can dive in and get your feet wet soon. Try to start simply and build your skills and understanding. I recently completed one of Bob Martin's 212 dynamic divers and it runs really good in my pool. Easy to build and solid performance. It will be a viable contender in the sub races at Subfest this year. A very fun little boat.
