Ok you got me on that one Steve ,but with the observation deck ,lights and stuff going in #2 ,I had to have a access hole in the nose .
Clive , these are 53 inch hulls . Rick Teskey made the hulls and done a wonderful job on them. I dropped #2 off the work bench last night nose first on the concrete and only scratched the primer. These are strong hulls for sure.
I got the rear fins on #2 tonight , Wasnt as hard to line up as I thought, I will post pictures tomorrow night after I get some filler on them and trim them out some.
