So it’s been a month… I’ve spent much of my free time trying to accomplish other projects, but I’ve done a bit more work on the boat. I’m now slightly past the halfway mark of the first step. Yeah… Step 2 still scares me, but I’ve read through the book/instructions a bit farther, and I see there are other steps that are even more daunting (how do you drill a 1mm hole? much less 5 of them within a few mm of each other?). Anyway, here’s where I’m at so far… this project continues to be awesome.
