Part 3 Priming the fiberglassed hull and marking the lines/holes.

Part 4 Scribing, drilling and filing the hull markings.
Part 4b Priming the hull and manufacturing the Safety Rails.
Part 4c Reactor Intakes, Limber Holes, Keel.
Part 4d Painting the hull.
Part 4e Painting the hull (continued).
Part 4f Painting the hull (continued).

Part 5 Cutting the hull in half and removing the foam and duct tape in preparation for hardware installation.
Part 6 Manufacturing and installing inside hull hardware
