It's nice when some things turn out to be intuitive.
I have a friend in the area who "started" his NAUTILUS about the same time I did --- over ten years ago. So far he has glued wood together and moved it closer to his lathe. (I'm laughing with him. Trust me. )
After my first trip to a local model club I challenged him. I said that we shouldn't let another year go by without at least finishing our hulls. I turned 50 this year and he is about to turn 60. I don't think we have too much longer to put things off.
