Hey Jay glad to see you are on your way, and still have access to the internet as you travel. As always, travel safe my friend and watch out for those Maine Moose!
I also hope you still got my phone number. I will be around all weekend (and since our shop is a 4 day a week shop, that means I should be near a phone starting now). It would be great to meet you.
I double checked with my boss if it was okay to show you and your wife the latest boat we are working on, and he was like , "Oh yeah, no problem..." so that is a go. I really hope you get the chance to stop in and see it. Its not floating but rather in a building but still very impressive..as a 15 million dollar yacht should be.
As a woodworker I think you will really appreciate the woodwork inside this boat. One carpenter alone worked one whole year on just the circular staircase, and I got 6 months on the cabinet trim...and that was just the stainless inlay let into the cabinets and granite countertop!! If you get the chance, stop in, I think you and your wife will really enjoy it.
I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
