…maybe you can send THIS “link” to that one ? ( since I can’t register there any more for some reason [some weird computer log in glitch !] )

I am “anonymous” there , now …not such a bad thing , I guess !

cheers ben!

This sensei needs some credit for pumping out these now… and for the past 10 years…

Again I submit…

what is really all that new nowadays?

Aside from the fact that CMP wants to try and balsa lam one of these babies for the Sensei to show him it can be done…

Aloha Oneula:

I like to see that balsa lam. Just trying to glass and sand those bottoms are tricky enough. I am sure Charlie can pull that off.
