And I just want to say that, while I'm sure your wife's opinion is of definite consequence, I'm sure your time is worth more than a buck :-)If you do manage to get it converted I'd be eternally grateful... Well, I kind of already am, I love this group too! It's great being able to glean info from other builders.Cheers,Aaron

Subject: [Airolite_Boats] Re: DVD Clarification
Just to clarify, this DVD was developed by Shade Tree Productions who produced a series for public television called The Boat Shop. Over a couple of episodes they built a Platt Nimrod Canoe, this DVD pulls those segments together. I originally worked with the gentleman who owned the show and paid him for copies of the DVD. It has been a number of years and I no longer am able to contact him.
With that said, I am happy to make copies without any gain on my side and will find a way to post digitally.

Just to be clear, I hold Platt and his accomplishments (which include such diverse items as GitRot, ferrocement boat technology, and an instruction book on making toy airplanes from McDonald's polystyrene containers, as well as GA boat tech) in the highest regard, but my past experience in trying to watch his video at night was that I never made it all the way through without falling asleep. Different strokes for different folks...
