    Kids wanted to paint the middle white since it was kinda ugly. Applied a few more coats of varnish and installed mahogany rails on top of girders. Next week we are going to install a cedar floor, then flip her over and finish up the bottom sides. Then we will add the skeg and start rigging her up. We are going to fab up a steering bar out of some 6061 aluminum stock.

    I put in for a HIN a few weeks back and havent heard anything back from New York yet. Anybody have any idea how long it takes to get a HIN in NY?

    Not sure what that is, but I would love to have aluminum foundry back in school. We could 3d print parts and sand cast them for endless possibilities.

    The wood finish is a nice touch and the two tone color combo looks great!

    Here’s the the gas tank for the back of your steering bar.

    Put the weight where it should be.

    Well school has been closed for a few weeks now and it doesnt look like it will be opening up any time soon. Teaching remotely from home sucks big time. Last week on friday they opened up the school for a few hours to let teachers get supplies since we closed so abruptly without warning. I grabbed the boat and all the parts associated with it, in case we dont go back (which is likely). This is a bad situation, I was really hoping to get this finished with the students. All that is left is rigging really which I can tackle once I get my own boat ready and splashed for the season.

    I have a student who works at a body shop. He resprayed the cowl and sent me a few pics. Check it out.

    Started finishing her up in my backyard. Cut some inspection holes in the sponsons, sanded and added a final layer of varnish. Then finally assembled the motor for the final time and rigged up throttle. Next is wiring up key switch, battery and kill switch followed finally by steering.

    Gorgeous Sean!

    You should be proud.

    Sucks you have to deal w/the school shut down.

    BTW, I think you’ll find you’ll be able to raise your motor another 2 or 3”.

    Also, that fuel tank is still in e-bay.
    Perfect for that boat.

    Gary, I've been watching it on ebay, but I want to see how low she sits before hanging more weight off the back.

    How should I go about raising the motor? Can I add a few shims?

    Looking good Sean. Kinda sucks the kids did not get to finish but they did do most of the build. Very nice.
