John, that was such a great find!  

One of the first books on the shipbuilding list was Cyril Ionides' "A Life Afloat", published in 1918. If anyone is looking for  a fantastic weekend read, that book would be at the top of my list. 

The Coots page on the Boatshow is great too - what a nice place to show off the group!

John McCallum is "walking on air" because he discovered a glossary of
Duwamish words for the various parts of a canoe in the Survivor Library. :o)

Now he's just gotta find someone who can figure out how to pronounce them...

Thanks again, Myles.
