The cowl I ended up receiving came from Mona and the team in Texas. Yeah, that extended hub prop really locks you into using their cowl. Hopefully she gets you one soon. I know for a fact there's an extra RV7 long cowl sitting in a shipping dock in maryland right now. If you're next in line it may be available sooner than you think.
When she first took over earlier this year she was waiting on some back ordered material before she could even start manufacturing. I'm sure they're doing what they can to catch up, but she was on pause for at least 2 months waiting for supplies. I think my original order for the cowl was placed february or march of last year.
