In the 5th video it could have been all over more than once :shock: I'd say he will finish it al right in his website http://www.submarineboat.com/sailboat.htm he already built his own house and two submarines.

I think it's awesome! Wow, what a project.
I spent a couple hours on his site yesterday just watching all the videos.
He's even casting/machining custom driveshaft pieces. Crazy stuff!

not sure if anyone's still following this, but I am.
He just finished building his own watertight steel doors from scratch. Pretty cool stuff.

I hate him, I always thought I could do and build anything then he comes along and showed me I know nothing :D
Na, you got to love and respect what he does, if I was younger I'd want him to adopt me :lol:
