Can you see it.....
You have to have a little vision but it's right there. My Broadbill. The wife asked, "Is that the material for my new closets shelves......I told her "you bet".........Of course if I screw up it may just be her closet shelves.....LOL..

Thats aaah start Ed, I've been asking around for some White spruce lumber for frames for a BBSB in the planning stage. The wife may have a small inkling. I bought another boat motor and trailer this fall. There starting to pile up. I bought it for the motor. A 50 hors. Johnson. The man wanted $700 for the trailer. Took $500 for the whole works.He even delivered it. The motor will fit on a 17 ft. boat I picked up last year for nothing. That boat was stored in his mothers yard and she got tired of looking at it. He had a problem and I had a solution. You have to walk softly if your going to build another boat. Like a friend of mine he's gun cabinate is full and his wife knows it. So if he buys a new one he has to take one out and put it under the bed. I never asked what happens if she cleans under the bed.hee hee So your going to embark on a new project,I'm looking forward to seeing it unfold.

Death and taxes may be the only things certain in life, but at least death doesn't get worse every time Congress meets.

If this is how you're starting your photo documentary, I can see we're in for a loooong lesson in boat building!

What are we going to see next? A shot of your lofting pencil?

Just kidding Ed. Getting the wood is probably the most exciting part of the process, next to launching.
