Randy,

You guys have been meticuloous in your ohoto coverage of this restoration. Has any thought been given to:

a. On completion of the restoration, offer for sale a CD showing all the work?

b. At any point in time, write an article for WoodenBoat magazine on the process? WB is THE magazine for traditional wood boat building and I suspect they might be interested. WB is about an hour from me and I know the CEO, so, if you like, I can broach the subject with him.

Wow. The bare bones shots really shows the work and dedication the restoration team is putting into the boat. And I love seeing the construction details usually hidden. Thank you for sharing them with us Randy.
