15782Re: [bolger] Re: Double Eagle
- Nov 27, 2001For those who missed it earlier, Fritz K has a real good site on his
Double Eagle at
He has pictures from late summer.
My thoughts other than the previous rave, were that this is a very, very
large one man project. If you look on the site you can see the very
narrow shop that Fritz is working in. In spite of the cramped quarters,
he is doing very nice work, and I was kind of envious of the finish
quality of some of his liquid joinery work.
I had seen the plans in MAIB, and I had thought I wouldn't mind building
one of those. That all changed when I got up close and touched and gazed
on the actual product.
Those of you that have built Micro's think of what it took to finish it.
Now multiply that by 6 at least. You have one hull done buddy, one more
to go. Then you get to tie them together, and do the rig, oh and don't
forget the interior joinery, and systems.
I think that Fritz has more time then most of us to work on the project
during the winter, but still one man can only generate so many
man-hours. I think he is going to get it done, and not to far off of his
estimates either (2-3 more years). Most of us don't have the focus to
keep at a project of this magnitude.
