Re: Roberta's Super Spartan

Well I was informed it was time for a update from ME...

I been keeping busy in the shop and making lots of sawdust and trying to crank out something half decent to look at.

Re: Not building boats but still keeping busy.

Hi Dave
If you got the money I got the time. Sounds like a song does't it??? Trouble is the cost of shipping might not be so good if I did build them for you.

Re: Not building boats but still keeping busy.

Thanks..I enjoyed making it but also forgot to mention the size of it. 7'X 4'X 16" deep. I had to go fetch my neighbor to help me get it out of the shop and into the house.
