      On Terror: I agree with
      choochowaga, the leap of
      faith to saw wood is 'mental'.

      What you probably don't
      realize is that Bolger
      designed Teal especially
      for the novice boatbuilder.

      With the specific intent
      of helping the first-time
      boatbuilder gain confidence.

      On dyeing Tyvek: My hunch is
      that, if the painted words on
      the Tyvek bother you, throw
      the sail away and make a new
      sail from all white Tyvek, or
      from white polytarp. That will
      certainly be more simple, and
      probably cheaper than trying
      (and failing) to paint what you
      already got.

      On Superbrick:

      I make a '1/2" to the foot' model
      of Superbrick yesterday, and
      showed it to my S.O. and asked
      her:

      "Does it look like a boat?"

      She responded:

      "It looks like a Hummer."

      Then we started noticing the
      really excellent spaces for
      lounging around in the sun
      on top of Superbrick.

      I now have this model balanced
      on the top center of the
      dashboard of my car, kind of
      like a Plastic Jesus, to
      meditate upon while stuck in
      the traffic jams of my commute.
