*Skiff 'Barbashela'/Leathers*
Morning, Steamboat collelagues:
Thanks, Kent, for your posting of the link above RE: Capt. Leathers and his 'Barbashela' skiff along with Shipyard Sam's comments. Great story with fascinating photos beginning from 'A' working in time to 'Z.' Never having graduated beyond 'lawn mower and paint brush 101,' I wouldn't know where to start, how to figure out all of that flotsam and jetsom of wood and fragments let alone have all the tools. The name 'Barbashela' itself musical, magical. Guess it proves "form follows function" becoming a work of art. Cheers!
