"It's a bit square for a boat" my daughter said as she walked down the drive. No comment! However, I suppose it seems strange that the first step in building a boat is to but 4 lengths of 4x2 to construct a flat building platform. The joys of living in Dartmouth!
Anyway - I have finally begun and four years from now it may be finished. Four years(!) you say. Well when faced with a giant task, approach it as you would if you were eating an elephant: a mouthful at a time.
