Another Jumbo is launched!
« on: May 15, 2024, 10:15:29 PM »
After six and a half years I finally have my Tolman Jumbo in the salt!  Years ago I did not trust my photo expertise to publish much from my iPad to this website, and now I am just too tired to make a masterful entrance.  However, there will be photos coming, because I owe so much to so many that are part of this group.
I want to call out just a few, and I sincerely apologize for those I have missed.
WCBoatworks (Chuck) gave me my first big start. At the beginning, it was pre-cut wood.  At the end it was an HIN that saved me massive amounts of time and money. Ron Barnes (and son-in-law Cordell) gifted me with a jig that was scheduled for the burn pile…. And, when resurrected in my garage it was only 1/4” off of square.
Personal visits with the twins when they were still in San Francisco, a trip to Frank and his nearly finished beauty in Bothell, time with Ron & Cordell in Stanwood and numerous emails with all of the above, have made a huge difference in my boat.  Especially my time with “LarsPa” aka Tom Eastgard, have made my time less stressful, and more productive.
The mistakes are mine - the cool features belong to my mentors.
Stay tuned - there will be photos!
