Welcome to the forum, Billy! Your post was quite amusing, but I'm not sure why; I may be reading something into your prose that was not intended. Hanging out at the pub and hooking up, trying to make a choice you can live with the next morning? If ya could translate for us Americans, we would surely appreciate it!
I've been out of touch for a few days, but I wanted to say thanks again to Rodney for introducing himself to us all and inspiring me. I love my present boat, a Columbia
34 William Tripp 'bubble-top', but I know I need something bigger long term. I may not go big like Rodney (I'm 5'6"), but just knowing what one man can do... Yeah, I know you had help, but boatbuilding is - essentially - a solitary occupation, how can someone else realise your dream for you?
