I had some time on my hands, so I decided to go whole hog with this project.
I started this in 1945. Just completed it, with over 400,000 man hours involved. Used 3.5 million board feet of quarter sawn oak lumber – basically all of Rhode Island. Painted the outside with 40,000 gallons of paint.
The real bear was making the 8 nuclear reactors; you know how hard it is to get uranium, let alone making a containment vessel out of Ipe?!
Also, the Feds sent some guys by to check it out. I had a heck of a time getting it down to the water. :)
(little comic relief for you!)
-- Have a blessed day!
