If you are asking about the Boat Shop DVD that was specific to this group, I'm not sure if you can. Obtaining the duplication rights and arranging for the conversion from VHS and a limited production run of DVDs was the project of Joel Silverman (jm_silverman@...) who started this group. It doesn't appear that Joel has posted here in a year, and his Yahoo profile shows "unavailable", so I'm not sure that he is still around. I'm pretty sure that he ultimately sold out of all 30 or so copies that he originally commissioned. Maybe a group member has a copy that they would be willing to sell.

Just to be clear, I hold Platt and his accomplishments (which include such diverse items as GitRot, ferrocement boat technology, and an instruction book on making toy airplanes from McDonald's polystyrene containers, as well as GA boat tech) in the highest regard, but my past experience in trying to watch his video at night was that I never made it all the way through without falling asleep. Different strokes for different folks...
