    The decadent days of bathtub racing! In a tub that costs more than my boat. NK+Woodworking+Lotus+Design+1.jpg

    That's a beautiful. Can't let my wife see it or I'll have to build it.

    My Anne sent me the picture, and let me know that I had decided to make it for her.

    Don't wood boats swell to contain the leaks?

    Heck no. Not a properly built one anyway. Swelling to comtain leaks became obsolete 50 years ago.

    I want to know why you haven't built one for her already?

    She puts up with you, that should earn her sainthood or a hand built bathtub at least.

    Hmm. Y'know, can't argue with that. As soon as I finish the surf ski she wants, I'll make her the tub.

    New tub already. Can't justify expense.
