As as sort of a sidebar, when (if?) the boatbuilding business in Maine gets rolling again, there should be more than a few well-paying openings for finish carpenters. It's harder to make things look and work good when there isn't one darn straight side to start from!

I've done some marine work on the west coast. Its' rewarding and challenging. As a matter of fact, during my visit I spoke with the cabinet shop Manager at Lyman Morse Boat Builders in Thomaston and was told that if they start hiring again, he would hire me.

Hello there, Grub. Thanks for updating for those of us who were really rooting for you. Please look at the web site for Cork Cove. That was a wonderful private furniture craftsman's place that was in an old mill building in Gardiner (which is right here on the Kennebec, 6 miles from me) and it burned down flat just trhee weeks ago. Everyone everyone, including myself and three so-called "news" publishers, thought the building was abandonded, but a local paper run by someone I know well did publish the real story. I saved it, hoping to see you some day, but most of the story is on his web site. He said he Googled himself after all the news stories of an 'abandonded' building burning down, just to see if he really existed, and his name came up for the first three listings. His name is Mike. His site is under Cork Cove Maine.

As a matter of fact, the Cork Cove man's name is Mike McKelvy. Is that the Mike Mc who wrote a note here? Eh? Mike?

Nope, sorry, not me. Hard to be a carpenter with acuphobia (fear of sharp objects). Don't like table saws AT ALL.
