Nicely put and my approach as well. I also have always genuinely enjoyed learning from someone else via unobtrusive observation (and listening) I was lucky enough to be a kid dragged around boatyards on the south shore of long island when many yards still had active boat builders. Karl Tank, Southards, Brewsters, Lake Worth Marine (in Florida) etc etc The shops smelled of teak, white oak cedar Honduras and usually, pipe smoke. There was also a pervasive dominance of Resorcinol as the glue of choice (serious builders) When I was about ten they started teaching me to plug teak decks! Now I would honestly rather not bend down that much
