Well, its been 6 months since I've been able to touch the flyer....but this weekend, I will begin to work on it again. However, I cannot, for the life of me, find the directions. I still have the plans, but I've lost the directions...thoughts?

So I started with the intent to do 19’9”...but somewhere, I added 4 inches... :lol: So, it will be 20’ 1”. I’m not complaining. Only issue now is that, with an engine, it will need to sit diagonally in my garage :roll:
