We also had to rip the interior apart to replace most of the wood and all of the fabric in the boat.

Beautifully done, Charlie... quite the project - no wonder we've not heard much from you lately!

Always love to see your work. CNC machinings, injection moldings, and laser cuttings are kewl, but you once again prove that it is with skilled human hands that the greatest things are done.

Actually, we're back down to one building for now as it's been slow. Yeah, it was more than a mouthful for sure.
