In a round about way I did, since technically, the presents I got were to fuel my guitar
building habit. However, as we all know, owning a sailboat and owning tools go hand-in-hand.

So, in that spirit, yes as I got a new bandsaw which will come in very handy for fabricating
trim pieces, cutting plumbing lines, etc. etc. Oh, and a fret saw, which I haven't figured
out where I'll use it on the boat, but I'm sure there's a need for it somewhere.

You'll have to restore an old steam launch next so you'll have a place to burn all that coal you got in your stocking.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Gill Sailing shorts (after MUCH hinting). A book on rigging and sail trim. Lots of pictures so maybe I'll actually understand it.
