The aft fuel tank is operational. Had to change to a larger box to get all the heavy wires and switch in. I could be a boat designer. I managed to put the controls in the most miserable place I could to pull and install the wiring. Now all I have to do is have the tank cleaned and buy fuel. Check off that project.

The raft is here and setting on the deck where it will be installed. First I have to get some backing plates and bolts, drill the holes, chew out the liner, pore in resin and let dry and re-drill holes, calk and bolt down the stand. Then I can chalk off another one.

I have a 3 page list of things to be checked off. I need more time. I say that with 9 months to go. I am beginning to understand when people say you never are totally ready to cast off.
