Re: [AtkinBoats] Building "Unsanctioned"?????
- Sounds like you've thought things out real well. I have to admit that I
never looked closely at Unsanctioned because I was put off by the styling,
but after taking a good look I'd say she's a Good Boat and will probably
work real well on the Arrow Lakes (any of the old steamers that used to
run up there still around?). As for the styling, I think one could learn
to love it if she was finished off well. At least she's pre tail fin! <g>
I'm sure you can build a better boat than you can buy off the boat
dealer's lot. Nothing manufactured in recent years will give the
performance and accommodations of Unsanctioned and use a 35 hp. motor!
Please keep us up to date on your project, even if you don't stumble on
any nautical terms. <g>

School days, I believe, are the unhappiest in the whole span of
human existence . They are full of dull, unintelligible tasks,
new and unpleasant ordinances, brutal violations of common sense
and common decency. <H. L. Mencken>
