    I use over 30 year my hand machine (picture) had never a problem and have fun to make that handfull parts
    Since there are many similar fishing boats in Greece, the Naxos has plenty of room for interpretation(it give no real Naxos)

    The real Speranza was a Renato "Sunny"Levi design, he was know for his fast deep vee hulls, Levi help by the Vic Smeed Scale plan. She is a very fast Boat and i build with 2 brushless
