    Default Ledger: a gift, indeed

    I've been the silent observer... just popping in occasionally to catch up.

    But I have to echo the sentiment. A gift, indeed.

    Just don't please.

    I too have been a quite observer and was very surprised to see the ugly belt on Mr Ledger's thread. To me, Jim Ledger's posts have been a great source of education and inspiration. Hopefully he will have the thread unlocked and resume posting once he is through with the preparation of his home for winter.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    And you don't mess around with Jim

    Come on folks, let us get back on an even keel here. We seem to have a storm in a teacup that is being brewed up out of all proportion. I have spent a little time looking across a number of previous posts contributed by Chippie and he does not seem to be the vitriolic man he is being made out to be. On the contrary, he has his own brand of humour...Breakaway, you were congratulating him last year on his wedding anniversary and the thread was quite amusing.

    I believe that Chippie is just as enthralled by Jim Ledgers craftsmanship as the rest of us but a little impatient to see a completion. OK, he may have strung his words to appear gritty but let's be honest, the man who has taken least offence is Jim himself.

    Please, please, could we have this thread locked...or better still...DELETED! and reopen Jim's classic build. I am quite sure that this is what we all want...including (I dare say) Chippie himself.

    I was thinking of starting a similiar thread here, but left it alone. I believe Jim has a thick skin and is Ok with this. He simply locks the thread every now and again to get it back on track. I made a silly comment a while back about clocking the slots on screw heads. It went off in a silly direction and Jim locked things up for a while just to get the thread back on track. A wise man, that Jim Ledger.

    I’m with you, Don. The mob is enraged easily, it seems.

    Finest work, Jim, which would be an inspiration if I had any hope of emulating you!

    Regards,
    John.

    Its more of a sign of people like David G taking things out of context and attempting to make a mountain out of a mole hill, for reasons only one can imagine. There was no sign of Jim getting miffed at anyone, and anyone who has read stuff posted by Chippie should no he means no malice. Agent provocateur sounds about right.......

    Never a good idea to put him on ignore... one misses out on SO much

    Jim locked his Catboat thread in response, it appears, to a bit of criticism. I started this thread to encourage Jim to unlock his Catboat thread. That is all.

    Nowhere in it did I denigrate Chippie, nor try to inflame the issue, nor attempt to make more out of it than was strictly required to offer that encouragement and appreciation. Sheesh, people.

    Meantime - Jim has unlocked the thread in question - so this one becomes redundant.
