    Well.... i have not built a boat from sticks.... however i have done sevearl Dumas rubber powered aircrafts, as well as an extensive woodworking background including furniture, a harp, a dulcimer, and several guitars.... i guess you could say i have a better than average chance of making something of it...LOL heres a pic of my current guitar project, that started as an 8' long 4"x3" stick of oak that part of a steel pole barn was shipped on, and another one that i finished about 7 yrs ago....
