Neil and crew did an outstanding job on the new 380. As good as it looked in white I can’t wait to see it after [email protected]&D works his wizardry on it.

A work in progress? How so? Because it wasn't 100% finished?

Yes--parts missing and sharp edges everywhere in the cabin. Assembly tools and misc parts laying about in the bunk areas.
Not what I would expect from an exhibit trying to drum up business.

It's a catch 22. When suppliers take longer than expected and it pushes the whole build behind. Do you work day and night to get it together as much as possible and display it since you literally have hundreds of thousands invested or scrap it and say maybe next year? I could see your point if it were missing key pieces like drives, engines, cockpit interior, but missing a couple cabin trim/interior pieces isn't a big deal. Maybe he should have shut the cabin door then people would have cried about that.

Saw a few other things that made me wonder besides being unfinished.
Still hoping that they begin building quality boats again.
Some cool features, ideas, and updates.
It was getting plenty of attention.
