Model Lobster Boat

I am going to post these photos of the 4' model of my "lobster boat" even though I am not through painting it, because a cold front is moving in, and I want to get the boat in the water before the pond freezes over. Since this is a 1/5 scale model, I weighed the model; set it afloat; and added weight to bring it to its designed waterline. Indications are that the full size boat will be about 700 pounds and carry about a 1000 pound load at designed displacement.
