Page 1, Section 6- the project begins!

Assembled vertical stab and match drilled and dimpled skins, ribs and spars.

I spent a couple weeks hiking from Red's Meadow in Mammoth to Lake Tahoe on the Pacific Crest and Yosemite to Tahoe trails in late June and July.

Then Deb and I flew to Oshkosh and arrived and camped with the Mooney Caravan group in the North 40.

Deb got her first view of a finished RV-14 and we spend a little quality time together trying out the fit and finish in the cabin. We both came away with the RV grin on our faces.
Today I finally got back out in the garage and resumed work on the vertical stabilizer.
