Man, I love this rebuild. Congrats on some fine work. Have you done the interior yet?

I would really like one of these, but my car has a 1400# tow limit. Is there any chance you weighed yours when the exterior was done but absolutely nothing inside? I'd like to know what the absolute minimum weight is.

Brian, what kind of material is StarBoard and where did you purchase (sounds nautical)

I'm not Brian, but...

Starboard is known as "marine lumber" (by the people who make it - I'm not saying it should be marine lumber!). It's a type of plastic, essentially. It's very machinable, color-fast, doesn't rot, etc.

On the other hand, it does not take caulk or adhesives well, it can't really be painted, it's a bit heavy, it's not structurally strong in the same sense as wood (say, a shelf - it would sag), and it tends to get dirty and be hard to clean. It's also subject to some creep under load.

It does have its good uses though; I only mention the detriments because I sometimes see it used in applications that kind of emphasize its bad points instead of its good ones.

This article tells more about it:

The build continues on...

Well... The build continues...
Thank you Brian for sharing this link. My husband and I bought this little gem from Mike in NH. When he posted this for sale, I was on the lookout for one that was near where I lived, Portland, Me. We went to look at it and I noticed he had a scamp in his driveway. I had mentioned that I had been en route to see one in Maine, when the owners called me and told me it was sold. " this wasn't from Bath, Maine by any chance, was it?" I said. He looked at the ground and said that it was... Ha ha ha...we had quite a laugh over that !!!
So the journey continues on for this little one.
I have named her Sofie.
Thank you Brian, for all your good work on Sofie. She will definitely be loved.
This picture is just a little glimpse of the next phases...

I'd love to know how she fairs with the rhino liner. Any condensation or concerns with it? Love the look of it!
