    Rossi Mill collection is a great resource, but I was talking about the Mystic Shipyard building that burned. Thanks for the picture though, always good to see those boats!

    Good for the locks to be aligned with the rowing position so your stroke is even and in line with the boat. 1/2" in the middle of the boat will not be noticed by many.

    I'd expect it to be quite normal. With stock near or square in cross section, twist is not a big problem when steaming.
