    A project involving the entire family. Very nice

    My fingers tingled at 0:37 in the first video, when I saw the kid so close to the open spinning pulley...

      I've been following him for some time now. Very enjoyable videos. Great project. Check out the video on watertight doors. The mechanism he builds to close it is awesome.

        Right about the child! There are several video clips that made me cringe where the child was involved. Thinking back, as I've been watching this for some time now, I found myself turning into a safety inspector when it pertained to the young boy.

        All in all though, It's quite an "involving" project!

          Nice. That video just reinforces the fact that I really want a CNC plasma table.

            I certainly wish them well. I remember back in the late 60s early 70s there was a guy building a steel hull cabin cruiser in Carol Beach, WI. He had a lot right on the shore line. It was something of a local attraction as it was abuilding for years. When he launched it turned into a real circus as nothing went right. IIRC he had more toubles once he was finally in Florida or the Gulf Coast with the Coast Guard
            Forty plus years and I still have ten toes, ten fingers and both eyes. I must be doing something right.

                I wonder when he's going to find out he's too old to do that sh*t anymore. He's already 7 years into it, and it looks to me like he's got at least that much more. Don't get me wrong, it is the kind of thing that keeps you alive and cussing.

                      I particularly liked this section and video within. I see he used Mach3 on the CNC router to make the sub's panels.
