Impressive. Very impressive!

Do you have a website or YouTube channel that shows your work in progress? I would love to see more and more details.

Wow, awesome, impressive --- squared!!!

I feel comfortable working in wood or steel but am envious of your remarkable sheetmetal work. Your wheelcovers, for example, are simply fabulous.

As for treating your marine ply, I've been involved with wood boats since the age of 10. The best wood preservative I've found so far is Cuprinol, if you can still find it in the US. Due to environmental rules enacted in years past, you may have to order it from Europe (if it can be imported). Alternatively, ask some of the marine lumber dealers. In the Seattle area, that's Crosscut Hardwoods & Edensaw Woods:

http://www.edensaw.com/
There should be comparable dealers in your New England locale.

Again, tears come to my eyes looking at your photos. You've done really remarkable sheetmetal work, of which you should feel quite justifiably proud.
