Thanks for mentioning my blog post about the fundraiser for the Mayflower II. They are struggling to get her back in the water sometime this summer. The lack of white oak for planking has slowed down the recovery.

Me, too! I found it pretty interesting.

You are very welcome, Heather. Hopefully we can spread the word across the net and drum up some money!
