Oops my bad - I made the videos public. You should be able to see them now!
I too hope that the woodshops open soon. As of right now, I am talking to one of my professors about getting access to the school's woodshop but it is not looking good. I hope we are able to take it out for sea trials once before this season is over - over the next winter we will probably repaint, get a new trailer, and do the upholstery: which would be the final steps to the build.


Edit:

Here are the two links from the previous page - so that you don't have to go back to get them.

I was pleasantly surprised at just how quiet the engine was: the loudest thing inside the boat was the fuel pump!
Wow, just watched the videos, that is quiet, Mine sounds like Paul's :)

If you have an electric fuel pump and want to isolate so it does not vibrate as much making it a bit quieter consider adding some rubber isolation bushings: https://www.mcmaster.com/rubber-bumpers ... ch-mounts/
