If it was for money I would have a big money job--duh!

All that complaining about shapers and craftsman is such nonsense.If they wanted to make money and show up 9-5 and live that lifestlye–then why make surfboards or in my case restore yachts.Sure i make a good living but,I really enjoy everything about THE LIFESTYLE.I enjoy all the fisherman and wealthy yacht owners and flaky but outrageously talented CRAFTMEN!!!I Now I manage subcontractors on yacht projects and if you think surfboard craftmen get flaky you should see custom metal fabricators and painters and on and on.The thing that is so obvious though is that we all really love the whole PROCESS!!! Just thought I would give you my take on what this site is all about to me.If it was all about making a buck then we would all be a sorry lot.
