  1. Thanks Steve, I will do a search and see if I can find it
  2. I am attempting for the first time to put copper plates on the hull of my Syren (actually I have started this process over 3 times already). I have looked through all the logs I can find through searching, which have copper plated hulls, and I have looked at many photos of the completed process, but I am at a loss on how to actually put the plates on the hull in the proper way. I have the copper tape, I have the plates made, but following the curve of the hull seems to be a major issue. Either I get my rows going too straight, or I can't seem to keep the proper curve going. Does anyone have any in-process photos of how they get the curve, and keep the plates on it correctly? Any help or suggestions would be most welcome.
  3. I am flabbergasted, and saddened beyond belief. My friend is gone....I cannot express how much I will miss him, all his PMs to check on me, and help me keep a smile on my face and desire for the hobby in my heart. My heart is heavy, the only thing to help assuage the grief is the knowledge that he went peacefully and quickly, I can only hope he is watching me from above and will continue to drive me to continue. May your soul fly free as your planes my friend, you are missed <3 Robbyn
  4. I know exactly what you are going through Scott. Started gutting the kitchen in my 100 year old farm house the day after Thanksgiving, finally "finished" (still have all the trim to put up) the 16th of May. Left for a 2 week European vaca, and then came home and began gutting the bathroom....only 4 more rooms to go lol.
