Actually I recall that about four or five years ago Norm and his friend Steve built little plywood dinghies and sailed them around his pond (or rather Steve sailed, I guess Norm exceeded the tonnage limitations ). I have always wanted to send away for a taped copy of the show, just to see what it was really about or if my memory is doing bad things to me again. .

Happy in Oxford
Here's to more reality t.v. shows that are actually useful and informing - maybe WoodenBoat should start up a show for the Outdoor network or something - they could videotape their summer courses and then present them once a week or so over the winter. Would need nothing more than a few guys with cameras, prodution co-ordinators, grips, gripes.....never mind
