Nice mods, Greg! This looks really good, and I like the stone peeking out from under the dock. Good call!

That Palmer Salvage operation is gonna need a tug. Thoughts?

Thanks Pete!
Palmers' Salvage tug is currently being used over at Wrecker's Reef gathering nautical goodies for resale.

Including Rum, or was that the whole purpose of the trip?

Greg, That is looking very good and I am excited about you getting back to work on this fantastic
project. Can't wait to see it develop.

Shiver me timbers!! Palmer's Nautical Salvage sounds like a great place to work.

Greg, Not only have you managed to salvage enough room for another neat little business, but you've also been able to add more interesting wall-to-wall details all over the place. Nice work!

Greg Iím humbled by the honor. I would like to mention all of our merchandise is discounted to RRL members. I might add I really like the location since Iím enamored with Nilssonís so much. Love that building. Thanks again Greg.

Yesterday our family got a taste of your weather. We all went to Gaylord Palms Resort in Orlando to see the ďIceĒ show. Its 6,500 colored blocks of ice carved into sculptures it was 9 degrees in there and 82 degrees outside. The grand-kids loved tubing on the snow slide.

Thanks very much for your posts guys!

Pete, I'm certain that one or two bottles might have climbed on board, but they were for medicinal purposes only.

Bob, I remember visiting such a place in Florida once, and it was packed full of all kinds of neat nautical stuff inside & outside.
A look that I will try to recreate with my Palmer's.
And it did look like a very interesting place to work!

Carl, it's about that time of year, that my pale Canadian finger should get some Bahamian colouring on it soon.

Bill, are you referring to all of the details in my small workshop that you see laying everywhere, in the background of most of my photos?
Thank goodness I put this display on wheels or I'd really have problems working on it, with all of my surrounding mess about me.

Thanks again guys, for your interest & posts!

Greg

Frank, I've been wanting to build this tribute structure to you for some time now.
I've been trying to figure out where is it going to fit in the space I have left.
So I was very happy when I came up with the idea of moving the Nilsson's ahead a bit, to try and fit your building into place, without making it look to crowded.
I will be building it as part of the KiSS challenge.
So keep your spyglass looking for that.

Greg

Greg, I've been in that workshop and can imagine it must be getting cramped in there! I like the changes and the progress you are making. I just hope you can get it out of your workshop when it is finished!

Wow that is some fancy footwork Greg really like what you've done.

Thanks Jeff, Frank & Jerry, for your posts!

Jeff, since you last visited my small work space, I have added even more artifacts & tools to the mix.
So it's even more crowded down there now.

Frank, I hope to begin the build tomorrow (Sunday).

Jerry, I've got 2 left feet, so that sometimes requires some fancy footwork indeed!
