  Thanks,,,   Me too !  :smt002         I'd love to share a lot more about it,, just a little premature at this point.

   For now all I can say is it sure is a lot of time money and labor involved in producing a mold like this.  Besides the kayak mold, there's three other separate components to it that also need molds.

   More speed has been the goal...   Can't hardly wait till the first test paddle. ( pedal )

  I'm so mad right now I can spit.    A woman from  Monterey Air resources board  showed up at my door today,because someone complained about  fumes...     They want me to get a " Permit" from the Air Resources board..   Evidently I can do what I'm doing,,, they just want tax revenue...    $  1,400 dollars of revenue !!!     If I were doing it as a hobby, it's free.     I told her I don't make molds as a business,  I sell kayaks ,  and they're molded at an Amish factory in PA. ...   Making this new model is my hobby, so get out of my shop and stop wasting my time!
     F'ng government has got way too big.

Really? That's effing crazy!!! I'm in IT and I hate when companies outsource to other countries. Now I can understand a little that they may just not want to deal with the bullcrap bureaucracy and the crazy taxes the Gov't can think of. Sigh....

Stay tuned...    For the past several months I've been VERY busy.   :smt003       

    Baby's in the oven and it's like 4 months along.    Pedal,,, Paddle,,, Motor or Sail.       The G2  with a   410 lb weight capacity is due for delivery in 5 months.       I feel like a proud papa already.  :smt044

Okay Jim that baby should be well into the second trimester, any chance for an ultrasound peak, progress report, anything ?
