Thanks guys. I'm happy with it. I still haven't bought the RC components yet. That's a bit of a hangup.  Once I have it in place I can stick the decks in place etc. She will start coming to life then.

I messed up a few windows on the rear port side of deck 1 cabins. I attempted to repair them but realized I was making it worse. Its one of those times when you just have to realize when to stop!

So I improvised and decided to install "storm covers" over them. After all is sanded down, and window box inner and storm cover trims are applied, it will look better. Ill ensure to install micro hinges to those storm covers guys, no worries

Its not to late to sort he windows out .The patch that you put over to cover the mistake just cut round it and glue in a piece the same thickness as the side . If you use epoxy when its dry you can recut the window ,or cut the window  before you glue in the repair piece .
Only trying to help

Thanks David. I actually used the blanks that you pop out from the windows to begin with. It helped save a couple of them. I'll try what you suggested on a couple. I think the storm cover might look ok when it's all done. I appreciate it very much. Thanks a million

I don't understand how that's happened as the windows are all laser cut and just need the tiny connecting bits cutting with a blade

"carelessness " and "inexperience "
I was trying to feather out the window frames to resemble the look of some older ships. I used a file and ripped to deep. It's all good though. The lessons I've learned from this build through mistakes and folks like you guys are invaluable.  My next canoe should be a much better job.
That said, I'm proud of the hull so far. It's strong and fair on all sides.

Hi everyone. I haven't thrown in the towel. I'm in the midst of preparing to move across the country. I'll get back into it when life gets out of the way.
