- That's a real beauty, John! Looks like a fun little boat and a good
vintage too (same launch as Ronin!) I'm jealous of your space to take
in such wonderful projects. Sorry not to have seen you up in Port
Townsend (we were there all weekend, mostly in workshops though), and
we didn't even think to go by the NWSWB, but then I would only have
seen so many things I wanted!
Happy tinkinering with your new project,
