Next weekend is Love Me Tender Weldfest!  Come by SV Seeker, Saturday, Feb 24th from noon to 6 pm.  Hang out with Stephen Cox, Chucke2009, Peter Zila and Richard Day – 42Fab.  Try out some aluminum welding, it’s not hard to do, and check out the boat if it’s not raining.

And many thanks to Jim who joined us again along with new crew members Andrea (Andy) and David from Nashville Tennessee.  Along with Bart we got all the shop cleared out, the all of the major parts of the jet boat lofted and cut.

Made progress on the Mastheads, and I am very excited about this VMAC. You’re going to be seeing a lot of this machine. Yes it cost as much as a pickup, but pickup without one is just a box on wheels. Thanks to Dave, Dave, Bart, Greg, and Betsy.
