I bet you use that more for pleasure and showing off than retrieveing your sea-planes.

You better be ready to stop an talk to people at the gas station, at the boat launch, at traffic lights, etc...

Everyone loves a wooden home-built boat, and yours looks awesome!

Let me know when you are going to do it and I will see if I can get over there !! ....

Looks incredible..now I absolutely know I will never build a boat !! ...I am going to switch to airplanes I think.,..those RV9's come 49 percent built..maybe I can be a good riviter !

The "Q-Z Bell" Sets out on her maiden voyage. Nice work skipper.
I have been wondering if you weren't already out there. Maybe you forgot to let us know? It's nice to see that isn't the case.
I know two boys who have been waiting a long time for this boat ride. Well you too I guess.

Have fun, Congratulations,
