Do you have the currently sold Yankee daylight tank?

I forgot that I had about half a box left of FP4 from my class, and bought a box of Delta 100 (it was either that or HP5, those were the only films the camera shop had when I bought the camera).
I do need a shuttered lens, my camera doesn't have a focal plane shutter and in daylight shutter speeds are too fast to be very accurate using a cap as a shutter. Paper negatives are another matter obviously.
I plan on shooting this camera for a long time, so there will be plenty of time to get good lenses. Since Chris is letting me try before I buy, if the shutter needs a CLA I'll just send it back to him.
I'll probably buy a Fujinon. They're inexpensive on KEH, probably even more so on eBay. And they have a good reputation from what I hear.
