G'day, gents.

Was digging about in the shop a few evenings ago and ran across the casting set for a "Little Kathy" as provided by what is now Rappahannock Boat Works here in the US. I started building this thing over a decade ago, got disgusted with it between my own ineptitude and scant castings and tossed it back in the box.

Debating what to do with it. I'm between projects at the moment and could easily kick back in on it, replacing the top and bottom cylinder covers and redrilling to suit the skimpy cylinder casting, and completing it. Tooling is certainly not an issue...

Debate is - is it worth the effort? Not a lot of effort needed, certainly - and feeling just bloody-minded enough not to throw away what was at the time not a trivial amount of money.
