My Shopping List

Long time, no see!
I spent my time working on a component list. You can go there by following the link "My Shortlist" on the right. I did my best to list every component necessary to build the boat. I have to admit, it dazzles me too!

All this has to be acquired. So this list is also a shoppinglist. Therefore, specially for my Dutch visitors: If you can advise me where to get all this the cheapest, (hey, we're Dutch, after all!) let me know!

I don't pretend to be complete, neither do I expect to have made the right choices. Please make any comment you feel appropriate. (Hit the links "comments" beneath every section in the list.)

Next week I'll be visiting the METS again. Many updates will come from that, I expect.
