place (Anchor Marina)and described it to him - I got the notion
somehow that it was no longer there ('tho I can't find that post
anymore); hopefully, he'll be able to help us out, and we can at least
find out where it is, who it's with (maybe they'd like to join the

- Martha Green is of pretty simple construction. She's built in the
old-fashioned Chesapeake cross-planked style. Get your hands on Howard
Chapelle's book Boatbuilding (still in print) for a good introduction to
building boats the old-fashioned way. If you can find a copy, Harry
Sucher's Simplified Boatbuilding: the V-Bottom Boat has lots of info on
building skipjacks. But building a Martha Green is a big project, so you'd
be wise to start with something small to learn if you like building boats.
