Great happiness is having a partner who not only doesn't complain about the time you spend at boatbuilding, but who helps you rip cut 16 foot beams into chine logs and sheer clamps.
Perfect happiness is having a partner who does this even though she's deathly afraid of power tools.
I'm just sayin'.
In related news, it looks like I have yet another free boat in the works that I'll need to go fetch next weekend. Someone in Pennsylvania is giving away an 18' Y-Flyer, including a trailer. I don't actually need a Y-Flyer (and there's no fleet nearby), but the trailer would be just right for the little schooner that I'm building. And there are fleets in a number of places that we might relocate to, so the boat might actually come in handy after all. We'll see.
