You may have heard the old saying “The cobblers children run barefoot” or “The tinker’s family eats from wooden bowls” or any of a half-dozen versions thereof.

It means that if it’s YOUR thing, your clients get better treatment than your family, mostly ’cause you can do family stuff “any ol’ time”, but it’s not that important.

And so- Kara and Steven are working hard at pleasing their need to make a fantastic boat, and their need to show how much they know about kayaks and physics around one another.  Those two things, added together, means that nobody’s paying attention to the clock.
