Hi everyone. I have signed on to help get this Harpoon back in the air. I'll be flying out to get some detailed pics in the near future, and we have made some progress on some of the parts we need for a ferry. If anyone would like to help, we have a fundraiser going on our Facebook page at the moment, every little bit helps, and we need the help, honestly! There are also some other really cool projects taking shape that we can't talk about just yet.
