I love watching the progress of your builds. They just look so precise and this one looks fast just sitting on the bench.

 :-)) Fabulous workmanship. Do you work with GRP as a profession or is it a skill you have learned in addition to being a boat designer/joiner/engineer?

Great build. Batman would love the design.  It harks back to the days of tethered hydroplanes. Look forward to the sea trails.
