Re: O/T How are your fabrication skills?
Good example of necessity being the mother of invention. Anyone who told me they were going to try something like that, I'd be full of doubts, but obviously it works and they made it. Ingenious. Are boats that scarce? I'd rather steal a Hobie Cat off the beach of Varadaro than try to drive a homemade amphicar to Florida. Must be some reason for all that effort.
As you know, a lot of us Canadians travel to Cuba for vacations. It doesn't look like that poor standard of living. Something like early 20th century but with automobiles and better medicine. Nothing as grand compared to middle class America, but on the other hand they have free medical care with a Doctor in every community. I'm inclined to like the people and place, were it not for their (former?) allegence with the Soviets. I hope there can be a peaceful co-existence now that its clear that communism isn't spreading like the plague.
