Re: [AtkinBoats] Glory Be?
- I haven't heard anything from Mrs. Atkin about Glory B (she reads the
messages here, but doesn't want to get directly involved with a bunch of
boat nuts like us! <g>), so I'd guess that the Glory B plans are either
lost or, more likely, were drawn for use by a professional boatyard and
aren't suitable for amateur boatbuilders.

himself into jail; for being in a ship is being in a jail, with
the chance of being drowned... A man in jail has more room,
better food, and commonly better company. <Samuel Johnson>
