Hi MGrob!
Lovely boat, thanks for posting. I'm struggling with one of these builds and your pics and video encourage me to keep going. I'm soon done with the hull so I don't really know why I'm stuck, but I'm having a little trouble to get going. Perhaps now that I've seen your nice boat!
All the best!
Hama.
