      I didn't know there was a battle between John A and Hearst.
      You're a wealth of information, and yes, a very nice boat.

      Snapdragon seems to be one of the plans that got lost when Hearst 
      Publishing stuffed the Atkin plans they held into black plastic garbage 
      bags and dumped them in their lobby for John A to pick up, after he 
      succeeded in his long fight to get the ownership of the plans back. :o( So 
      there's little chance that plans for her will ever be available. 
      Snapdragon was published in MoToR BoatinG and appears in volumes 17 and 46 
      of the Ideal Series. She's 32' 4" long by 9' 4" beam, draws 2' 7". 70 hp. 
      should be good for 18 mph. A nice boat.

      There is a custom, amounting almost to tradition, that true boat
      speeds are obscene and must never be mentioned except in a
      highly dressed up state. (Lindsay Lord)


      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.
