Re: [AtkinBoats] Ordering Plans
- Mrs. Atkin has been off on vacation. Probably on Block Island, if I know
her. :o) Most of the study plans are copies of the MoToR BoatinG articles
on the boats and you can get a cost estimate from them about as well as
from the full scale plans, though a magnifying glass will help. If there's
not a materials list with the study plan there probably won't be one with
the plans. If you decide to buy the study plans first you can deduct their
price when ordering the plans.
What boats are you interested in?

- Thanks for the information. I plan on Building the boats, so, I guess
I just order the Full Plans and bypass the time of looking over Study
I have 3 Boats I want. I keep looking over the available choices and
here where I sand now.
The First as I have always wanted a boat like this is the "June Bug".
Ever since I was a small child and seen boats similar to this in
movies it has always been something I liked.
My Second boat of wanting is the *Active III*. I love the Ketch and
Yawl. These have been boats that, to me look, elegant with their extra
mizzen mast and sails. I guess they remind me off the Hugh Schooners
of old with a full array of sails from bow to stern. So, the *Active
III* caught my interest because of it's size. This will be a fun
day-sailer for me that I know will make a great conversation starter.
In this same size range I am keeping my eye on "Pocahontas" she is an
interesting girl. The first time I ever seen a Lee-Board design it was
a Gaff Rigged Sloop and I became curious of the design. I mainly just
wanted one to know more of this design and "Pocahontas" give me a good
way to do this.
My Third boat and it be the last on the list to build is a Sail-Boat
that will be my home for the rest of my life. Making this choice, my
head is spinning as there so many that would make a home for me. I
look for a length from 30'-38'. I do like some smaller lengths but may
lean more toward the latter/longer. I have narrowed down to 6 choices,
Ha! This will need to be a World Cruiser, that is well prepared for
Mother Nature and her fury.
Here my list and if anyone can comment on any of these I would love to
hear your input.
