Yeah, I'm not trying to steal any ideas, I love the scale and look though. it'd be a perfect addition to my fleet. Good luck on yours and when you are ready to share the bulkhead plans, please let me know. Thanks- I'm glued to this build.

Looks amazing. I see you are building two? Using hobby king hardware? Looks to be a great fit. Keep up the good work. -Alex

Hi Guys
I had to mod the rudder to get all the hardware to fit[&o] so it is not a carbon copy of the silverhook. it will still be very COOL! having a blast!! Craig

Are you going to glass over the foam then try to dig it out or are you now going to make this the plug and do a mold?  looks interesting anyhow.
Keep up the work, you are getting there.

Hi Mick
I will remove the foam in the aft section after I glass it up. the rest will be built in flotation. the foam only goes half way in. it would make a good plug) but no money, never enough time. and Copyrights![:@] thanks for the comments! it is going to be a very cool boat. picture it running 60-70 mph Craig

Hi again!! Looking great! Youve inspired me to make my own. I've designed a mystic themed mono different from yours but I'd like to know the diameter of the rib structure please. Is it 1/8"? And what kind of wood are you sheeting it with? Diameter of that too? Looks great! Almost there!

Hi F15
I buy my plywood at lowes. I get a 4X8 sheet for 15 dollars. the ply is like 8.5mm thick. pretty close to 3/16. the wood on the bottom is 1/8 inch ply. looking forward to seeing your build. scratch building is very rewarding. Craig
