Desperately seeking...Knistle

Thanks to Jeff Lopez, I am desperately looking for a book
called, "Surfboard Design and Construction" by James F Knistle
It is dated, and probably self-published, but it contains some real gems of knowledge.
Anyone got one they want to part with?
love this part of the sole review:
" If anyone knows the author, let him know there is a market for this book, particularly an updated version, where 40-something, former surfers could confidently execute a really cool father/son or father/daughter project. If you surf, have the desire and some basic building skills, this book is a must-have for your library!"

Minor Dent?

Not really surf related, but am looking for a new wagon, and this ad said,

"Minor Dents"
Nothing like a sense of humor...

What I Love About Community

You know, just when you think the world is going to hell,
and that people are becoming less and less human,
someone does something to make you take it all back.
Thanks Patch

Excuse the dining room table shaping stands...did this at the house.
Hard to get a match to the tuflite paint, and not possible to gloss.
Done for Johnathan in Durham.
Now I'm awaiting feedback.
