This is one of the first photos taken of me and my Coot.  It demonstrates that I had never used

a power tool in my life, for here I am cutting away excess plywood on the 96 bulkhead with an

X-acto knife, instead of a router.  Note the tiny wood vice mounted on an old chest of drawers.

The garage was only heated enough to keep the plumbing from freezng,

while my Citroen had to remain outdoors in the snow of March 1972.
