  1. Goldilocks can't decide if the porridge is too hot or too cold so it goes back to the kitchen until the cooks get it just right. πŸ˜‰

  3. Thanks Edward. It was a fun project. Now if "climate change" will be kind to us this winter and let the Hudson River freeze to a thickness and area we can safely use, we may get to take it for a sail. Of course, there are still some tune-ups to be done, starting with sharpening those runner blades πŸ˜‰ I am thinking about scratch building a model of Manhasset later in the season, the dual cockpit should look cool, especially since I now know exactly how it attaches to the backbone.

  8. File a counter claim with PayPal giving them the Postal tracking number along with a screen shot from your computer. If PayPal is as good as they claim they are, they will reject his claim. I watched a package I sent to family in Maryland sit in the USPS Newark NJ Distribution Center for 7 days before it moved on to MD. It was sent 2 day priority mail.
