    I went into the Old Man's shop to cut some wood and this box of books was left on the tablesaw, with my name on it.

    If anyone is interested, they could be had for the cost of shipping from Northern New Hampshire.

    Thanks fallguy, but I lack shelf space or time to read them or make use of them. Under my care, they will sit in a box hidden away for all eternity. That is, if I can keep my wife from seeing them.

    Did he get to Fiji? Looks like he has everything there he needs.

    Nice collection. I have or had most of those, plus a lot more. But, I have been donating mine to the Wooden Boat Foundation library in Port Townsend and The Northwest School of Boatbuilding. I simply don't have the room for them any more. Except for two, the rest of my collection is in storage. I'm still looking for someone to take the rest.
