A really BIG bug.

So I'm working away in my shop when I hear this buzzing noise. I look around but see nothing so continue with my task of oiling the grids for my bowsprit and boomkin. I stack the bowsprit grid against the wall
and continue with my task of oiling the grid for the back-porch (boomkin). I hear the buzzing noise again but louder. I do a quick look around and see nothing. I stack this grid against the wall also,
I then start sanding the Tiller. I'm just about done when the buzzing gets really loud. I set the Tiller against the wall
and then decide to stack these items all together. That's when I found the culprit .... a huge wood bug, leaning against the wall.
Do ya think it will ever get off the ground?

Not exactly a contender for "faces in the boat" ... oh well, back to work.

There are good ships, there are wood ships, and these ships sail the sea

But the best ship, is friendship and may this always be! ... ... ... A prayer from Ireland.
