Ballotta is top of the list, not sure about Raoul, I will see if he is
interested. Ballotta charge $10,000 to deliver to the Panama Canal,
so it may not be quite that easy!
Does not have to be a KSS builder, the technique uses flat table
infusion and edge radii, but there is none of the cutting and shutting
below the waterline that is used on KSS. And I will be there to show
them what is required, if necessary.
