Thanks Steve! Yes, it's quite useful!

Working on building fuel tanks...

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?
