Re: Boat plans delivery
- Thanks Dirtsailor,
I'll get off the pins and needles and try to make sense of the shop.
This boat won't be built in this shop however. I'll need another 25
ft of shed more than I have to build Missie & Laurie (a 45 footer).
I'll use the time constructively by getting my plastic classic ready
for the water and building the outrigger for my 3 plank pirogue. That
should burn a few weeks at least.

- Actually I had plans in hand about 14 days after sending the check.
Not bad considering 3-4 days to get there and 3-4 days back. Pat
seems to be prompt. But remember that it isn't like a major company
where there are a dozen shipping clerks just waiting for the order to
hit their computer screen.
Patience is always a virtue. Though I too lack much of this
- Dear YahooGroups,
I will be retiring from my job and I want to build a
boat in my free time, can anyone send me a plan that
I can downloaded to my computer. It's an honor for me
to build, around 14' - 20' in length.
Regards to the group,

Do You Yahoo!?
Tired of spam? Yahoo! Mail has the best spam protection around
I have the study plans in hand. I went off to Seagrove, NC for 4 days
to check out the potters community there (and buy a ....load of
pottery) and when I got back on the 13th, they were here. The post
office (or some vandal) managed to get my mail strewn over the lawn
where it got rained on and the letter from Mrs. Atkin accompanying the
plans was unreadable due to melted ink. The plans were OK though. I
feel very strongly that I will build this design sometime in the
future. Thanks to everybody for the counsel to patience.
To Hardy Stein, I tried to answer your e-mail, but it came back
undeliverable. What I said was:
My intent for Missie & Laurie is a liveaboard also. I
tentatively plan to use her in the inland and near
coastal waters on the East and Southern coasts of the
U.S. My wife has been declining for the past 10 years
with Parkinsons and strokes and probably won't be sharing
this adventure with me, so I'm not worried about the C/B
being in the cabin. I figure a 45 footer will be
ample for a "hermit" even with C/B. Actually starting
to build will not happen till (I hope) some time in the
future when I'm alone.
Your plan sounds good, however M & L sides look
like they may have too much flare to take leeboards
without some kind of significant hull attachment to keep
them parallel with the mast. You'll notice most if not all
of Bolger's (and Michalak's) designs with leeboards have
Tulls Bay, NC.
I had the pleasure of taking several boats down the
Eastern side. On one of the trips, weather forced us
into the "Ditch" at Norfolk. Even though it took
longer, it really is the best way to see the East
coast! Coinjock NC has a great steak! If you haven't
been there it is a great stopping point, along th ICF.

OK! I never ate there but I'll either drive down or sail(if I can get
splashed) soon. I love a good steak. I live about 10 mi north of
there a couple NM West of the ICW. We have a yahoo group called
scbtrailersailors and a couple of our members are planning an ICW loop
excursion that will take them through the Great Bridge canal,
Blackwater River, Coinjock, Eliz City and back up the Dismal Swamp
canal. I'll let them know about the good steak situation.

None of the Atkins plans are free, but you can find some free boat plans
through the links here:
Good luck with your boatbuilding!

Missionaries, my Dear! Don't you realize that missionaries are the divinely
provided food for destitute cannibals? Whenever they are on the brink of
starvation, Heaven in its infinite mercy send them a nice plump missionary.
- Dear John,
Thank you very much for this, maybe if I had done one
I will be brave enough to buy a bigger plan from you,
Again thank you so much.
