      Thanks Peter,

      Kind of a Single Eagle with traning wheels as regards
      Schorpion, wonder how she sails throught he wind, that
      is a lot of superstructure.

      Computers can be tricky. Sometimes the simplest thing
      can take longer than... building a Wyoming. Anyway
      thanks on my account.

      Thomas

        I really like the other half of that article, the "Puffer 40". When my wife thought I was serious
        about sending $2000 to finish the plans, she became much more interested in finding a place to retire
        on the Eastern Shore(MD), on land; and hence, my house project. Clyde

          Clyde,

          Berlin, MD, is a nice little town to retire to. My parents just finished
          building a house there, and there are at least three developments in
          development (Henry's Mill and Henry's Green come to mind right off -
          contact Bunting Realty for details). At any rate, I can highly recommend
          Piney Island Builders of Berlin. They have nice designs, can do custom
          designs, and the workmanship is very good.

          One really nice thing about being on the shore is it puts you in closer
          proximity to the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum.

          Good luck!

            Does Clyde or anyone else have a copy of the "Puffer 40" article
            posted where I could see it. Having just moved I am still missing my
            back stack of MAIB...I know that they're in a box, but I don't know
            which box or which room. Thanks for the help.
