A Hydrostatic test, tapping the staybolts, tweeking the throttle gland packing.....this all points to a steam-up in a VERY short time now!!!

Amen!  Just amazing to see Mike's photos after all the hard work those involved with #9 put in.  My Christmas gift came early for me this year.
What–me worry?

She certainly is a beauty! You folks really know your stuff! I can't wait to see her in person, with or without whitewalls!
I need nothing else for Christmas.
