    Tools that are truly the best are easier to use and far easier to teach (or learn) with.

    No such thing. A tool is nothing more than the extension of a user's limb. A piece of crap tool in the hands of a hack craftsman, will have predictable results. The same tool in the hands of a skilled craftsman, will yield excellent results, though they may curse about the quality of the tool.

    I didn't say a word about the results. Teach more. You'll learn a lot.

    I like boating ,my boat building is to lower costs , so my favorite tool is the 6x48 sander.

    Fine woodworking is great if THAT is your hobby.It is NOT mine.

    I just want everything to for well, and go sailing.

    I'll go with the chainsaw also, but add a nice glop of thicken epoxy and some very sharp sandpaper.

    If it doesn't fit, fillet and the extra is removed. :D

    (Secret: Avoid putting on too much fillet.)
