      Finally, finally, months after I finished building my AF4 'Mr. Moon' will
      hit the water either tomorrow or Sunday.

      Since my motor is pretty much dead without a cash infusion, a wonderful
      person whom I just met at a messabout a two weeks ago has loaned me his 7.5
      Merc so I can go boating at least once this year. The motor came off of an
      old Ranger 28 sailboat, so the prop is probably too low a pitch to push her
      at optimum speed, but who cares! We'll report how it goes.

        JB about his AF4

        That was sort of my impulse regarding a Sneakeasy. I
        am not a motorboat person, but kids just like having
        fun, and don't always have long attention spans. It
        seems to me that one can mix it up more off a
        motorboat than a sailboat, or my first love, a canoe.

          Nice look'n boat, Capt. John. Chances are the prop. is about
          right- a bigger problem (as to speed) would be that the outboard
          is probably a long-shaft model.

          Jim Michalak is working on the drawings for the bigger AF4; should
          be done within a month. About a 20% enlargment. I have seen
          the cardboard model and it pretty much looks the same as the original,
          just bigger. When my 18-footer rots away/ falls apart, it is
          going to be a tough decsion as to what replaces it; an "AF4Grand"
          or a "SkiffAmerica 20."

          Hey, I don't see any purple in those photos!?
