    Out of curiosity, what do the pumps that you print look like ?
    What motor would it take ?

    Greetings to those going to Tug's build:
    Does anyone have a spare working servo that I can have for a project ? I understand that they are standard from brand to brand. I would like to pick it up at the build.:)

    Wood is in the shop, going to cut it into pieces tonight. I have been really stressed and tired the last few weeks, so I'm glad I've got some experienced guys coming to help :)

    I will leave the woodworking and boatbuilding hobbies with the same number of fingers I brought in. And no other-people's-blood on my floor or sawblades :)

    I believe the gentleman from KY was trying to say "Root Beer, Root Beer, Root Beer, Root BEERRRRR"
    He could also be thinking KY whiskey or even "White Lightening". The Ms Admiral would also appreciate no missing fingers :D

    As I feared, something came up and I will miss at least one day. I don't know which day yet, either.

    We will get what we can done with 4 guys. If you need to work on it later, we can keep it in my shop since you come up to do boat work anyhow. Or you can put it in your barracks room :)

    Greetings from FLA:
    I have printed out a number of line drawings and pictures of a number of 1870s to 1922 armoured ships of Spanish, German, British, French, Dutch, American,and Swedish designs
    for everyone to review during down times. Some have turrets, so do not.
    Cheers, Manuel Mejia, Jr.

    I should still be able to make one day, I just don't know which yet.

    I'd love to see some of those pictures. I could use a bit of inspiration.

    Looking forward to seeing them! This will be a fun weekend. The more we get done on Saturday before glue-up, the more we can do on Sunday with decorating :) After we put in propshafts and rudders :)

    Note: There is no hard-and-fast end time on Sunday, as I know that several of you guys will have to drive quite a ways. The wife wants me to knock off at 3PM (since she's letting me play the rest of the weekend), but other than that we're free to play :) I'm going to try to get my prop installed tonight and sheet the beast so we can collectively throw weight into the hull and see how much it'll take to float at waterline. Since everyone's is +/- the same below the waterline, that should be a good number for all cruiser hulls.
