I really, really need to buy a house. There's no workshop here at the Ant Farm (I live in a townhouse-style complex. Blech!), and there's no room at the 'rents house anymore, where once upon a time I had a 2-car garage that was my personal boat shed. There's a 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass 442 sitting smack in the middle there now. Grrr.
Anyhow, I've been thinking about building another one of these little beauties:
I used to build boats when I was bored.
I'm bored now. Ergo, I would like to build a boat.
Not the most straightforward justification for spending a couple hundred g's, but there you go. I need a garage for a couple of weekends, so I ought to think about buying a house.
PS. Anyone want to commission a new boat for themselves? One of these rowboats for $999, finished in varnish or the color of your choice. Weighs out at 135lbs at 9-foot 9 inches- fits nicely in the back of a pickup.
