    This is not the hull of a Yacht this is the hull most Navy’s would like to have as an addition to their fleet, “Fast Frigate” maybe. It’s going to be an outstanding boat!

    Circa looks like a fun place to work.

    Very cool. Does the guy running the wheel have someone on the floor with templates or is there another way to check progress shaping?
