I saw one of your boats posted here and I really liked it. But I give all credit to the builder, the client and not you. They managed a nice boat depsite your lack of design help. Interestingly it was missing a lot of the BS "special touches".

" Shafhauer blocks?" I have never heard of those. Could you direct me to a web site so I can see some. You didn't mean Garhauer did you?

"back when I was extremely naive " Classic BS.
Yes I meant Garhaur. Sorry for the typo. Great blocks, far better than any other commercially made blocks, but certainly no advantage over building your own, and far more costly.
