    Awesome Brother I'm here for any questions. I have been stalled on my projects so I used the time to make some pens on the new wood lathe was a lot of fun and I knocked them all out in 2 hours.

    Tall ship GORCH FOCK - the never ending repair

    I love this class. I can see that many may look at it as to modern perhaps, when you think of old ships this one doesn't fit the bill really. I love the nice straight, sleek lines she has, looks super fast and I'm sure it was.

    Fresh out of the Hospital

    Truth Brother I agree with this. We humans tend to push blame everywhere but where it truly belongs. You sound much the same as me with the acceptance thing. For me I had a look like I'd rip your head off and burn your house down so most folks didn't mess with me ever, not even crows of people...
