Never-the-less, I have that

and I dream of building her often.
More progress on Micro Navigator; I

- Thanks Peter that was the whole reason for building the model. If you can build it 1/8th scale you can certainly do it full size. Full scale is more forgiving. My wife is more forgiving of 1/8 scale than full size. Maybe as soon as I get all the honey doos caught up I can start on the real thing.

WOW! If it weren't for the background clues,I'd swear this was a
full sized boat and demand to see pictures of her sailing with you in
A very nicely done model indeed and I'll bet it sure gets your

- I've taken you up on that idea, and posted a couple pics in Bolger3
of a His & Hers Schooner model I built a few years back. I gave the
