I haven't heard from The Granite Falls group as they tackle the world from Texas but Michael did

post under their own build diary.

I did receive a message from Ray Therat telling us that he made a post this morning.

Check it out.

Sabat......Thanks for the interest. It is getting exciting to me as it goes back together.

I think there will be major action early this fall.  That means testing.

I have a thought. I can`t help but wonder what will happen to the thousands of Clecos after final assembly. I am running low on these at the Shop, and wonder if having Clecos with such an impressive provenance can`t help but scare the shhetmetal parts into submission..... :mrgreen: :-D

Kiwi Paul, you have Cleco's? I thought these guys had cornered the world market! The global shortage may have even delayed the Boeing Dreamliner! :-D
But they put them to much better use!  :cheers:
