Working on the punch list, but is 99% done. Just little stuff like rubrail inserts, wiring, etc to be completed.

That looks like a TSG. Made by some guy there in Florida. It uses a Lenco Troll/n/Tab actuator for motivation. He frequents the gheeno site if you want contact info.

Mate, that looks absolutely bloody beautiful. I've been bustin to see the finished product.

I just logged on to post a couple of photo's of my painted model FS18 and found this. It is an absolute credit to you, love the colour too.

Just got to get those last niggly jobs done and then you'll be able to start using her. Now I suppose, I just have to say, can't wait to see some 'on water' piccies.

Good on ya mate, well done.

Mick.

That is beautiful, Josh 8) Very nice work. I particularly like the poling platform. Is that custom built?
