Hello John... My name is Bruce T. Martens. I am a San Francisco Bay
area Marine Surveyor. I have built several boats and rebuilt many (Make
that"...way to many..." older boats. Attached are two photos. Currently
I am rebuilding an old 43' 1926 work boat, now-live aboard. I recently
saw the John Atkin design NINIGRET 22 and fell in love. Soon I hope to
begin her construction. In doing my research, I came upon your 'blog'. I
just wanted to say how much I am enjoying following your progress.
No matter how long it takes to build your boat, the 'journey' should be as
rewarding as the final results. Enjoy every moment... ~BRUCE~ (707)

There's a woodworking adage that goes something like this: "Every one
makes mistakes. The difference between a beginner and the Master Craftsman
is the Master Craftsman knows how to fix his mistakes."
No doubt this is true, but on the long road that leads to Master
Craftsmanship, I am still on the 'on' ramp. So I've come up with my own
adage: "Make Mistakes Slowly".
