Thanks Steve! Yes, it's quite useful!

Working on building fuel tanks...

Using purpose-built tanks and re-purposed pontoons. Looking at about 350 gallons of fuel total.

Another short and slightly outdated update:




You may be wondering why we haven't plunked her in the water yet...

Very nice.

Gosh you have so much snow! I went skiing recently in Holiday Valley ski resort in NY state. Wish I had some of your snow the conditions were icy and not that great.

I'm curious about your piping color scheme - is there a standard or did you pick your own colors?

I would be happy to send the snow your way! Haha

The colour scheme is my dad's doing... He was just looking for a simple way to keep plumbing identification easy. They're not from a standard that we know of.

Wesley,
I've been wondering where in SW Washington "Next Weekend II" came from, and what it's previous life may have been?
I live on and island in the Columbia about as southwest in Washington without being in Oregon, could be a chance we may have run across her in her earlier days.
I've noticed in the pictures that your dad's hair gets grayer as the project progressed, a testament to the time and commitment required for such a project. Nice work your dad has done, hope to see it in the water soon.

I've eagerly been watching these videos as a subscriber to your youtube channel and it's fantastic.

The one thing I'm confused about, is what is your general lag between an event and when you release a video.

Was this the summer? Or is this happening now?
