    OK, had to negotiate with Santa to replace sticks and coal for some Belgian Chocolate and 30 year old port after the Babe finally got with the program. Now I have to negotiate with the Easter Bunny as well? Spring is here, so time to get with the program. I sure would hate to have to travel to Florida to repossess the Port. Then again, might not be a bad idea:dancing:

    Thump, Thump, Thump--that's the sound of an unhappy Easter Bunny's banging on the ground in frustration. Spring is upon us, but no Babe to welcome the season

    Yeah, not much sailing to report on, I'm afraid... :( There's only some "Babe construction" photos worthy of sharing. The good news is that we're making a Trans-Atlantic jump in 3 weeks! Assuming we have some warmer weather on the way across, we'll have lots of photo opportunities... :pimp: (...the Babe has become a bit pretentious lately... only dons her swimsuits when the weather is warm, unlike the good old days when she would tough it out!!):worthless: IMG_7929.JPG IMG_7981.JPG ]

    BTW, that's black walnut... used for our salon table and the desk in the master cabin. She should post the close-ups, especially since she made the inlays... :biggrin:

    The custom touches always make the boat. Where did you find the huge chunk of black walnut? How hard was it to do the colored epoxy inlay for the cracks?

    OK, time to get us grounded. This thread is now 17 from the top of the list. Enough lame excuses about incredibly beautiful furniture-time to get back to the real world now that the weather allows for more appropriate attire. Option 2 is for us to descend on Florida, cameras in hand

    Aren't you guys getting off the subject a bit? This thread is NOT about carpentry.......

    Hmm, never noticed the carpenter's tatoo before.

    Or is that an appendectomy scar? :biggrin:

    Hmmm. JSG gets it.
    Glad you pointed that out, although that was not my focus on this shot.

    I haven't noticed any tattoos or scars, because I can't get past those external obliques. Wowza.

    Now now children- be careful. Let’s not bite the hand that feeds us. That said, seems like a long time since we were last fed

    That, perhaps, could be a "motorboat" :biggrin:

    I did a bit of engine yoga today. I don't think anyone would want pictures.
