    *key banging on* Just need to fill the boat with weight, mark the waterline and cut 1" below that. Already have a cut hull? Just use tape on the sides as temporary substitute (I have seen blue tape, duct tape, and foil tape. Added benefit is removing the tape in one big piece will be a template for cutting the balsa if you want (or not). *key banging off*

    I was amazed at how fast GLAS was able to change a bag of parts into a fully operating ship!!!! Will and Craig did a phenomenal job on the electronics. I do want to give credit to Battlers Connection for making some very friendly electronic parts
    I did a great job of supervising . lol

    Oh.... that is going to be lovely to see next time I'm in Saranac.

    There needs to be an I-Boat v. VDT duel at some point.

    I have really enjoyed these builds.
    They are great fun, and new people get a great jump on their boat.
    results: We have been growing from just Mark and I.
