      Of course, I had to use your link to look at ElonJessup. And as always, had to look at many other Aktin design and then looked at the photo section. Any link to Atkinco give me an easy excuse to browse around. Anyway, in the photo section a particular boat caught my attention called the Snapdragon. It's a beautiful work boat with a tumblehome stern. Unfortunately, plans aren't available and there's little detail.

      Would you know much about it; specs, propose, plan in the future, any other publication is might be in?

      Thanks in advance,

      It's Elon Jessup:


      Elon Jessup was designed after the Atkins had stopped working for MoToR 
      BoatinG. Can you give me the date and plan number, Billy? Elon Jessup was 
      published in Practical Small Boat Designs in 1983.

      The two Atkins reportedly designed over 900 boats in their lifetimes (the 
      numbers stop at 876 -- Sunshine, but there may have been some designs that 
      didn't get a number for one reason or another, 876 is a lot of boats 
      anyway! <g>). A lot of the designs were for MoToR BoatinG, but a lot 
      weren't. The current Atkin Catalog lists somewhere around 300 designs,

      No flaming, cursing, politics, religion or public mopery. Please be polite.

      If you set out to build an Atkin boat, please do not modify the plans. If you stray from the plans you do so at your own risk and Atkin & Co. will take no responsibility for the performance of the resulting boat.
