326Re: [AtkinBoats] "Stepby" info sought
- Oct 17, 2004Welcome aboard dan! The earliest volume of the Ideal Series my index shows
Stepby in is #9. My copy has a copyright date of 1927, so the boat was
designed before then. That's probably as close as we'll get to dating
Stepby, unless the plans exist and Mrs. Atkin sees this thread and digs them
up so we can get the number and make a better guess, or there might even
be a date on them somewhere...
Stepby is a high-speed boat in spite of the sharp stern. Just look at that
flat run! She probably wouldn't be a good choice for electric power.

Never put off until tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow.
