8) I have been doing some cost checking from local supplier to having material shipped in and found I can have the marine plywood shipped in is cheaper than buying local go figure http://www.marine-plywood.us/douglas%20fir.htm from Homestead I can get it cheaper than from the only supplier in the state but it only works if you place big orders :lol: :wink:

Nice, the flame effect on the breather cover should go well with the modern style. :D

Okay Rod, I expect to see lots of pics coming our way. I'm glad for you that you can finally get going on this. I can't imagine having to wait three years knowing that it will still be several more before she's finished. Good luck and take care.

:? after doing a inspection of the foundation of the house we are in now it is not going to work. so I am breaking the contract on it. I made a offer on a larger house with more property and won the bid now if the buyer of the farm would get off his butt and sign the papers I will buy the new place :wink: . then the fun begins 8) :lol:

:roll: ok a update on what is going on with me. no boat progress. but finally have a definite build site. I bought a five bed room house with a 1/4 acre of land no shop on it but one will be built. my what we do for our hobbies :lol: I am still in process of moving into the house and doing things to up grade the house before I move on to building the shop. But on a nice point getting the house gave me a reason to buy some new toys (oops I mean tools) A new air compressor and nail guns. Also on the property is a shed that is to be torn down to make way for the shop it has quite a bit of lumber that will be used to build my building form for the boat. i got the house on a short sell buy and got a real good price on it. :wink:
