Anything goes, as long as it falls under the general forum protocol and rules.

It took skilled craftsmen hundreds of hours...

Post by CapnK »

So Facebook puts this ad in front of me for a "finely made, handcrafted model" of Ernest Hemingway's fishing boat 'Pilar'.

The ad copy says that making this model "required skillful craftsmen hundreds of hours to accomplish"...

Wow! All that work, and it's retailing for only $389.00. :shock:

But I think Hemingway would have had a real hard time using this boat, if the model is at all accurate... :mrgreen:
