Hi Will,

I also cut the front part of Rapier 2's front cabin down to deck level over the weekend, and I will start to graft the replacements back on this week.

The replacement  cab parts have been cut but have no windows yet - and this is delayed as I am still messing about with shapes as I am trying to make the boat look a little bit different to Rapier 1.

I am keeping up with your progress on your Sea Commander - stay with it  :-))

Bob.

Bob, I dare say that will be quite a satisfying job, because the change in look of the boat will be huge regaining cabin sides and will start to resemble the Rapier once again, even with it's few tweaks.  It is a job I look forward to doing on the Rover, when the time comes.

Its only a minor tweak Will - but I have extended the cabin roof back a bit - and I am also looking at the rear cabin to see if I can do anything to make that look a little different too!

It will be interesting to see the end result Bob, especially to compare the little differences here and there to the Rapier 1.
