      Buehler's main thesis is that there is no money tree in his backyard.

      He says he tried bedding canvas in epoxy once and would never do it again.

      I enjoyed his reference to "Miami Teak" which is supposedly used for boat
      decks in the low rent districts of South Florida -- three or four layers of
      tarpaper smeared with asphalt based roofing tar and covered with aluminum or
      white "Cool-Dry" trailer roof paint.

      He does like Arabol, as mentioned.
