A7 - stuffing tube install1272 viewsHere the stuffing tube gets lined up to be 'glassed in after the motor mount holes are drilled. The kit comes pre-drilled on the #3 bulkhead for the stuffing tube but since I went with CY motor I had to slightly alter the height of the stuffing tube hole due to a casting difference on the bottom of the engine crankcase. No big deal as about 30 seconds with the Dremel tool took care of that.Don Ferrette

C9 - rear deck tabs714 viewsAluminum bar stock gets cut & glassed to each underside of the deck to provide forward anchor point of the turbine rear deck section. I haven't decided if I'm going to just drill it & use a nylock nut underneath or tap it to 4-40 but I'm leaning towards the nylock nut as I think it will be better vibration wise.Don Ferrette

B1 - tank pocket666 viewsLike my '94 Joe's the right side gets cut out & walled in for the Walt Barney fuel tank that will reside there. Enough room is left surrounding the tank to allow for padding and silicone to adequately secure the tank. Also visible are the two blocks I 'glassed in on the side just forward of the tank pocket for the remote needle & antenna tube bracket.Don Ferrette
E5 - fitting stacks & driver placement960 viewsExhaust stacks are drilled & mounted to check the fit before the cowl gets primered later today. The area behind the stacks are open to allow even more airflow inside the cowl. I just had to drop the driver figure in for that quick look to see how the boat's gonna shape up as I get closer to the end of the build. Don Ferrette
G2 - wing repairs begin640 viewsBig thanks to Phil Thomas for the real nice rock solid carbon fiber Lucero style wing set. Graphics arrived today so time to put my baby back together.Don Ferrette
C2 - extension in place823 viewsHere the deck extension is weighted down to keep it tight to the surrounding decking while it cures. The weight in the rear is to keep the boat balanced & flat on the set up board. Don Ferrette
