    This one the wife did most of the work on the hull.
    She got a bit carried away with the lightening part.
    She loves to scroll saw. It is one of the few shop tools
    I let her use. She gets huffy when she sees me using
    it.

    24"X12.25", 4.48lbs, .36ci, 1.2hp, 17,000rpm.

    As soon as we get some decent weather there will be
    a vid.

    Both boats are built from 4mm luan and covered with one layer of
    1/4oz glass and polyester resin. The inside is sealed with polyester
    resin as well.

    In my spare time, I do have to work one day a month. Sometimes
    it it is three or four hours.

    I restored a couple vintage bicycles.

    1980 Ironman, aluminum frame.

    And a 1975 Spalding.
