|proto 1 under construction - notice the kink|
in the rear quarter deck and the dip in the shear.
|rear view of proto 1 showing the add-on transom|
and narrow rear cockpit.
|rear view of proto 2 with the cleaner shear,|
angled transom and raised rear quarter decks.
|proto 2 front view showing the new shape|
coming together. This one is made of fir.
For some time the motor shop under the mezzanine has also been the recipient of things that just had to be "moved out of the way for a minute" and had gotten to be a bit of a grotto. Well that is changing fast with Peter and Glen getting lighting up and running, removing stuff that doesn't belong there - should look good by Saturday and the arrival of the ACBS for their Winter Workshop Event. We are honoured that Kids & Classics Boatshops has been chosen to be the host!
|Glen hangs the new lights in the motor|
shop. He has been doing some really interesting
research on the Gas-Hopper's engine hot rodding!
|George has worked out most of the details|
for our new Super-Steam Box!
Here are a few more shots of the new Mini-Hopper Sea Flea coming along under Bernie, Tyler and Anton's delicate attentions.
|Bernie agonizes over angles (and jutes?)|
|Anton fairs the front deck centre frame|
which changed from ply to wood.
|Bernie and Tyler getting the bottom right - finally!|
