Shucks Fellas, who knew??? Now I've got to keep'em coming...61,000 will be hard but I've got time right, at this rate maybe 3 yrs...
I've actually wondered about the continuity in "Hull Construction" but I think it was Al that said I should keep it in one place start to finish, and I believe the tale will keep unfolding for years to come, hopefully not with so many HUGE endeavors, eventually I could put this one completely to rest but everytime I venture outside this thread I get lost, I lurk around other threads and eventually come back here. I hope the contributions of so many well informed and experienced people during my struggles serve to assist and inspire other people who fall in love with these ole stubborn wooden girls.
I'm trying to talk Lana into naming her Uh Oh!
Others...Oh Lucy! Jinxs! O.F.I.A !(ocean front in Arizona)
Lock ,Stock and Barrow!, Ice to Eskimos!
Lana said "#%*& Bill" -she didn't mean it but...
That said, when we actually went to see "the boat" it was after I, OUT OF NO WHERE, started looking at Craigslist boats for a weekender, as in once a month, small sailboat with outboard...trailerable, us, the dogs, that's it...I found one for $1200, trailer et al, asked Lana to come see it with me and she said right off sailboats are too much work, little did I know... just after, on her own she found "Rags" and as we left the sailboat, she said "lets see...here call Bill" Whos's Bill? We did and that was it...All he (Bill) had to do was start the damn thing and I was hooked, as we walked away from the boat to "think" about it...Lana said something along the lines of "throw me a bone...I can run with it"
I've never regretted it, not one time.
