Holy crap! "...6 to 18 inches in length, and 2 to 5 inches in
diameter..."


I think that it said "girth", not "diameter". Taking girth to
mean circumference, that give a range of 0.6466" to 1.5915", or
approximately 5/8" to 1-5/8". However -- as for the length, we're stuck
with that range. :-)


Sounds about right to me.....

A few years ago I was listening to the book on tape "Moby Dick", yah that
title works with this thread. Seems like the wives all had some carved
wooden 'friends' to take the edge off while the man of the house was at sea.

Never know what you will learn when you read a book.
