It's a awhile since I posted. Busy with work, repairs/restorations, lambing and a million other things. Still haven't rinsed the kayaks off this spring though. Must have some mis-placed priorities!
The exciting news is, an old General 490 fell into my truck recently, in exchange for helping a friend with a job this summer. It needs some work, new paint, tires etc. The biggest problem is there's no stand, just a home-built bench made of 2x6's that just won't do. I can get a new stand from General, but they're pricey, and as this is likely to be a fall and winter restoration job, I have time to take a look around first. I know it's a slim chance, but maybe someone in eastern Canada or the US northeast has one. I think it's the General 4990 enclosed stand I'd be looking for.
Any tips along those lines would be appreciated.
I've been reading the OWWM site with great interest, by the way, but didn't want to just stick my nose in there and immediately ask for a favour!
Thanks and best regards
