We had an opportunity to provide a couple of skiffs for a movie shoot and one was the old beater skiff - so we had to make it look like new from 100 yards! TNT is getting help from many as we get closer to water testing time.

It almost looks like boating is about to happen. The Lightning has been more than four years in the restoring and this is getting pretty exciting (and agonizing).
