Re: Boat Plans,a thank you from the blushing bride......
I too have found the zone. I don't always use the liquid helper, but
when I do... it's usually some sort of microbrewed beer. The higher
alcohol content helps, as does the delicious, satisfying taste. Many
are the possibilities, but one of my favorites for boat work is Full
Sail Ale, out of Hood River, Oregon. Sipping on some McCarthy's single
malt whiskey works well also.

Whaddya mean,"somewhat soured by age"?! Don't you know we are all
like huge premium bottles of wine getting better with age? All we need
is for someone to come in to check on us once in a while and to even
give us a gentle turning and Presto(!) we get better. God knows there
is enough grief and turmoil in the world thus it suits me to a"T" to
also be kept in the dark a while also :-)
Besides that, this boatbuilding hobby is grand medicine for
nurturing our inner child,who may become starved while we struggle with
adult life realities.....even our hero Bolger calls our boats big
toys....I say "Let's play!!"
As regards this business of perfection being the exclussive domain
of various deities, I say phoowee! It is all in the eye of the
beholder....just ask my crewette :-D
Keep a good thought Bob!
