    Bring your boats! Bring your self! We'll be at the battle pond in the morning doing some testing, then at the shop doing boat work in the afternoon.

    if i get solenoids before friday the Yamato may come up so i can get some help on arrangement. else probably won't come but will get the kongo finished. B turret is installed just need the aft deck and rudder reinstalled and a bottle hold down placed in and it's back to functioning agian and might actually have 3 guns that can fire for once.

    Still waiting on the quote on solenoids. Told them I wanted 20 of them, that'll supply Brian K and myself, and Christopher as he builds his Littorio.

    If no one brings it up, I'd say FINISH_KONGO. Just a thought :)

    I went and asked the nurse in the room next to mine, and she thought that instead, you might want to FINISH_KONGO.

    The Pope called for our weekly chat on things of cosmic significance and when I asked him, he crossed himself, and said, 'My child, he should FINISH_KONGO.'

    And so this one time, I was caddying for the Dalai Lama, and when he finished 18 holes, he turned to me, and said 'I cannot pay you with money, but on your death-bed you will receive total consciousness. But FINISH_KONGO first.' So I've got that going for me.

    It was a paraphrase of a quote from FINISH_KONGO! ...I mean, Caddyshack.

    Tuggy, you're one to talk about finishing projects. How many half-completed hulls in your shop? I know, I know...You've got some that are done. Ish, OTOH....

    I think that I'd have gotten more done but last season I refitted one that was previously completed, and now I'm refitting another one that was previously completed.

    i have a 4 hour drive to get there so being up at 4am to be around at 8 takes most the fun out of it.
