If you’re serious and interested in the items I
  5. Dirk, I'm with Augie & Mark about taking a timeout to think about it. In the end, do what will make you happy every time you see your build when it's with your father--don't settle for anything that will make you think harrumph every time you see the ship! Cheers, Jay
