The Ducks on the floor were cast by him and has adjustments on the ends for the hold down pins. As I said he makes as much as he buys.
We discussed at length the fun of building you own boat and what places he intends to visit once he's finished building. He fully plans to sleep aboard and have a boom tent to keep off the rain. It will be quite a site to see both our boats sailing into a small harbor for the night. I'd rather see a dozen but 2 will do for now.
I'll be dropping in on him from time to time and marvel at his progress. He's retired so it won't be long before he's got frames stacked in the corner of his shop.
