PRESENTERS
*************************************************************************

Walter Hansen presented a slide show about the agony and the ecstasy of wooden boat building and it wasn't a whale of tale or two. There are few squares, in any, unless you are talking about onboard mess or makeshift land lubber river rafts, when building a boat.  Crafting a boat is a challenging use of compound and bevel cuts.  Walter explains, in his presentation, how all this creativeness comes about.  In the photos below, Walter holds a model boat that he crafted.
