I added a page for the deck hatch and the hold open device:

Wonderful details Jeff. One of these days you'll have to plug all this into a 3D printer and pop out a complete resin PT.

Jeff, your craftsmanship and eye to detail is impeccable. Not knowing CAD make me very envious. I'm just stuck with my analog pencil pointer, ships curves, ellipse templates, oh yeah, as one of my closets friend and tech writing cohort Paul Gansky says, "can I borrow your hole-ometer" (circle guide.) Keep up the nice work.

Beautiful detail on all of the work you do. I would love to have color copies of each of the sections that you have completed. Framing them would make for a wonderful addition to the Mosquito Fleet Exhibit.........

Thanks guys, I'm glad you fellow PT geeks like them.

It will be nice to get a boat done and create something other than parts drawings. Although going overboard on the detail may mean I won't be able to render the whole boat without making my computer faint.

I know you'd love working with 3D Dick. There's a free open source 3D program if you ever get any free time and have the urge:
