After taking the past two weeks off for the winter holiday, we're back and ready to keep going!
A few of the team members decided to keep working during the break, and they are ready to begin restoring the boat. It is possible that we may finish up with the hull construction by this time next year, so keep your fingers crossed!
The team has started building the jigs for the engine stringers, and you can compare them to the originals in the pictures below.......then and now.
We will start with building the bottom of the hull first (upside down), as this is the traditional way of building doing things.
If you have ever wanted to learn how to build a vintage hydroplane, now is the time to do it....................come on down and join the team!
