I glanced over at Agatha, and grinned. "Want another project to play with, now that we've got this lovely lady built? I was considering another vehicle that was made of wood..."

She raised an eyebrow at me. "Oh...what did you have in mind?"

I chuckled. "I figured we could use something with a fair bit of cargo space...and there's this plane that I always loved. Built by a bit of an eccentric, and never really used, sadly. I figured we could make our own version." My grin widened. "The original was called the Spruce Goose..."


Tougher than the toughies and smarter than the smarties! The ship's AI, Scrooge, is patterned after a certain Glaswegian aviator-turned-tycoon duck because of the "first dime" mounted in the control panel. He has a sideline in financial wizardry, and is often consulted by the Bank of Sol and Stellvia Corporation.
