Some folks cry "spam!" whenever they see anything at all commercial in their
mailbox, I'm not that sensitive, but in deference to them I discourage
outright commercial postings here in the forum (except from Atkin & Co. of
course! <g>). Links to builders of Atkin boats would be appropriate in the
links section. In fact, if they could let us know about their Atkin boats in
a way that doesn't seem blatantly commercial I'd welcome them doing so in
Someday soon I'll be setting up a links page in the Atkin site. If you've
got any suggestions for what to put there, please let me know. For general
nautical links I'm just going to send people the The Mother Of All Maritime
Links, so what I'm looking for are links of particular interest to Atkin
I've asked Mrs. Atkin to see if the plans for Big Surprise are available,
and if they are I'll put her into the catalog.

Never board a ship without an onion, is sound doctrine.
