Way to go Smitty!!!
I wish you the very best of luck in your quest. And, I am absolutely certain after hearing your level of expertise and "good old common sense" which you have expressed time and time again here on this forum, that you will come up with both a vehicle and conversion plan to be very proud of. (No, I am not being sarcastic, I have read your excellent advice to people on here... and even agree with some of it.
At any rate, GOOD LUCK!!!
As an aside, are you perhaps a fan of J. S. Mosby? I was just wondering with the picture of the boat, not many people remember where that came from.
Thanks, and have a great day.
