    Beautiful work and a real credit to you. I can only hope my new tri where the Paulownia strip planking is nearly finished looks anywhere as good

    Just got a slight detour my son blew the engine in his jeep. Looks like we will be rebuilding an egine the next few week-ends. Just when you get a head of steam going......

    Yep but it will be a good learning experience for him. It was not his fault that the engine went - it was rattling for years I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did.

    Updated picture 6/3

    OK I'm back took some time off for work, hate when that happens. I started a new job and had to get up to pace then I was in Europe working. Last week I start back on the TMS-20 down to final faring she is starting to take shape now - I smell the outside carbon skin soon....

    Thanks Corley!
    Faring a boat out that is a flowing set of complex set of curves is quite a chore but I keep chipping away at it. There is not a straight line on the boat. I've learned a lot on the first boat. When I build the AMA's I'm making a mold for each side. here are few more pics.

    On the first pic the forms holding the boat have a line towards the top that is the DWL we will see how close it comes to that. The DWL was for the stock design.

    Thanks Doug, right now I do not have any active projects at work so I may be around for awhile. I just returned several weeks ago from a fitting out of an Interactive TV system on a new cruise ship, Canival Magic, in Montfalcone, Italy.

    The 88 Jeep wrangler engine took almost two months but as you can tell it's not stock, er a street legal shhhh! Bored out, mild cam, DUI self contained ignition, no computer, no smog, webber 38, some manifold work, everything inside the motor new. It actually gets better MPG if you keep your foot out of it!
