Hell surfers never pay for hotels...there is always a bro with a floor to sleep on.I guess I ought to stop bitching about computers...if I didn't have one I wouldn't be able to spew my brilliant theories.Ha!

>>> I thought this was a shaper's chat room (or close to it). Just curious What is the difference between a chat room and a forum?I assume that this is a forum...I have never seen a chat room.thanks
Mike... Your undertaking of the Knowledge Base, is a major contribution to the art & craft of surfboard building...Thank You!!! The outline you've set up IS comprehensive...This WILL BE the resource that board builders have been needing since, well forever... I think that the Discussion Forum will lighten up a bit, with the redundant questions having answers centrally located in the Knowledge Base...Perhaps that will free up the Discussion Forum for more challenging, conceptual, progessive, idea based, and thought provoking areas of give & take... Again Mike, thanks for your contribution to fueling our passion for perfection!!! Paul
