It is now obvious what you’re doing when you’re not on the board.
Firstly, before speaking about your boatbuilding project, I must say that I’m very impressed with your writing skills – your way of putting things across in the articles is spot-on!
I know what you mean, by “I may often refer to the odd 'thingy' or 'what's it'”; Don, a rose by any other name smells as sweet.
Also, some folk can look at a self-build Ikea product, and put it together without the need for the instructions; so I think that when you humorously use the term, ‘bodger’, to describe yourself, you should be saying ‘experienced and naturally talented boat builder’. Don, having seen some of your work, it’s obvious that you have much patience, along with a keen eye and natural ability to do these jobs. Michelangelo’s didn’t rely on plans while sculpting his masterpiece, David, and we can’t fault him.
Don, I am immensely impressed, and admire anyone that can look at something and replicate it in that kind of meticulous detail.
Cheers and good luck with your boatbuilding projects.
