thats really cool, I really liked both these kits. But just couldn't get past the plastic hull to purchase one. Epoxy would be great. Jeff Jones

Thanks, Jeff! The Marlin is well into the retooling. You can follow the retooling and relaunching at:

I'm shooting for the re-launching of Marlin at the 2011 SubRegatta at Carmel, IN this August. Albacore will follow much later this year.

Should have asked any idea yet on cost for the Albacore (without ballast system)?
And when in 2011?
Thanks

Wonderful Steve,
but has there been any indication of price and when the kit is coming out this year?
-both are pretty reasonable questions aren't they?

Thanks
