328Re: "Stepby" info sought
- Oct 17, 2004Hi John:
The only other clue on there is that the plans are from the "Motor
Boating Build a Boat Series" I don't know if that directly coincides
with the Ideal Series books or not.
I thought it seemed kind of rounded, but I guess you're right, from
the engine back it's a pretty straight run.
Side note: This book is the first I'd heard of the "Practical Series"
from MB, the Ideal Series seems to be much more popular - has anyone
seen the Practical Series before? I'll send you some photos John.
