Hi guys;

I was waiting to get my copy in the mail before saying anything. But apparently the mail comes to Alan Snow's place early in NZ!

I was asked in January to write an article about MAKOTO, and it came out in the current issue.

We also made the cover! That was a fun day shooting on the river!

It was very nice working with Matt and the folks at the magazine. We are honored to have been granted so much space!

For anyone who doesn't know, the restoration thread is here:

And Yes.. Chuck T gets props for seeing the future...

Cheers.

Got any hot stock ideas?

Sometimes I forget how brilliant I am. You know, its just so commonplace for me that a particular insight isn't notable. :d

Found it. I'll be darned. You have an amazing memory.


I could totally see Makoto on the WB cover!

Well Holy Mother Merlot!! Congrats Scott!! Most excellently deserved too!! When that issue arrives up here this summer, I'm buying two. One to read and one to seal up in my time capsule so one day some intrepid archaeologist will know that I once knew the guy who owned MAKOTO on the cover of Woodenboat magazine and he was a most honoured member of the LPBC too. Incredible!!


BRAVO! BRAVO! AND BRAVO! AGAIN!



Cheers!
