Ray I like the way you have done the running gear . I have been looking at a way of doing it without the normal wooden keel and that looks similar to a tid witch I had not thought of, off to cut brass.

Hi Ray:
Seaspan Tempest eh?
Good choice. Wait till ya see Doug's 'Seaspan Venture(s)'.
He's built two so far, one just for playing in the pond.
