I'll say. Bill F., the president, sells from a table at the Toronto Boat Show every January, with his wife (they both look well past 70). When I bought a traveller from them, a guy named Guido at the factory called my house and said "where do you want the holes to start? Every four inches? Two inches in or three or four? And do you want 1/4" or 5/16" holes?"

So I went down to the boat in a snowstorm and measured and phoned him back. Six weeks later, I had a finely machined six-foot girder of great beauty and smooth operation. Six hundred bucks, all in.
