Good luck finding the right one.
Good point. I've seen about a dozen boats so far and they all have had something. I'm just trying to get a handle on what is SOMETHING and what is something.

And of course, the dream that I can parlay some skills I think I have into a deal.

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
