Not my goal at all. The fella that came up with this is entertaining doing something off the wall and unique with an old wooden boat. His state of mind with regards to her historic value is that if she was so important, she should not have been headed for the dumpster when I got her. Besides, being European, American History
doesn't hold a lot of value to him on a personal level. He figures that the purists should put up or shut up... Me? I'd rather see her be converted and loved rather than dismantled and parted out....
I'd rather return her to bristol but would probably enjoy the technical challenge of doing the conversion. My primary concern is to keep the shop doors open.....
