Re: Brick near Boston
- I will vouch for the quality and condition of Lincoln's Brick. It is
really first-rate. The asking price is well less than the cost of
materials, to say nothing of the labor.
Lincoln wants it to go to a good home, so that counts me out!

- Glad to see my little baby is still going strong! As Lincoln said, you can read all about
building it on my site at http://www.geocities.com/owlnmole/brick.pdf
If you have any questions, fire away. Do copy the message directly to me as I don't get to
these groups much anymore.
The rig is the same as used on several of the Bolger/Payson Instant Boats series. If you're
considering building one of those, you could get "Tetard" to sail right now and have the rig
ready when you get to your dream project.
