sure is a nice way to produce a new hull in a hurry.
is the result smooth enough or do you need a bit of sanding still ?

Yes very slightly
There is a final pass that only takes off thousands of an inch and gets it very close

Here is a shot of the top starting. The bottom is complete.

Here is a shot of the propeller support fins as they came out. The plan is to cast these parts as part of the hull and as one piece with the bearings in place so that the end user wont have to knock their brains in trying to get everything lined up proper.

There have been a requests to have the kit supplied with the polar ice sail so one is getting put together. In the end you will just request which sail you want with the kit or both.

Looking good. I predict this will be a hit with all the first generation nuc boat fans, including myself. Looks like I'll just have to get one of these.

Perhaps you will make it to Groton for the fun run and you can join the group picture we are planning at the Nautilus.
