It is a shame to see that beautiful wood painted but it's the right thing to do. :-) I really look forward to seeing the updates. Wish I lived there so I could volunteer. Great job to everyone!

Looking at that deck I'm thinking, "What a great diorama that'd make using one of the Italeri PT boat kits".
