Re: Bread & Butter (and Jam)
- Hi All,
I found an image that shows lofting lines and part of a hull that fit in
with the previous posts about bread & butter construction and staining
layers to give the appearance of a planked hull. The bit about jam is not
a suggestion for staining layers with jam. It's about a jam that I'm in with
AT&T which I will resolve by looking for another Internet service provider
as soon as my AT&T connection is turned off today, or maybe tomorrow.
Best wishes, Frank
