I follow the series also, excellent job. I would send one to him, I'm sure it would bring in a grin.

not sure how long it took, i don't keep track of the time, i'm guessing about 8 hrs from start to finish. no template, just drew it out, carved the basic shape and added the details after installing the line and hook ties and ballast. tips? a sharp blade and bandaids:eek: it swims real good, i hope they try it out. got a postcard from them today saying thanks. pretty sure it was from their p.r. dept as the handwriting didn't match the autographs on the card. oh well, hope they get it and not some secretary's boyfriend:)
