970Re: The Powerboat with Sails, "We're Here"
- Mar 18, 2006I'm surprised there were no answers to this post, especially
considering Mr. Atkin designed and built this boat for his own use.
That says a lot about it. Perhaps someone in the Macnaughton group
would know more about how this design worked out since they wrote that
I assume there are no plans available in your inventory for We're Here?
The book has enough information in it to build the boat but I would
certainly buy plans if they are available. This boat would also be for
my own use also. It's perfect for me, although some minor tayloring of
the cabin would be needed. Not anything that will destroy the trim or
cause a lot of extra windage, though. It's all in the dream stages
right now so I won't bother you about it. There are some projects to
finish up first. ugh!
Spring is right around the corner! :-)
