Finished making the drag plate. Printed some pics off of goggle image of Allison drag plates, mocked with cardboard template, think I got it pretty close. Used .190 t-6061 aluminum and merc paint....got 30.00 and an evening into it.

Nice plate! Apparently makes a big difference, looking into a polycarbonate one for mine, might pick one up this weekend...

Finally finishing up on the inner hull. Next will be getting it reunited with the deck and start all the easy stuff....the finish work will be time consuming, but I'm well over the "hump" now!
