[bolger] Re: Bolger 'Wiki' shared knowledge
- I've just added a link for #426 Jinni. I couldn't figure how to make
it more direct, yet cover all the Jinni references there in the PDF
copies (Surf is there, others too). I think everyone readily sees
the only other Jinni link I know at Craig O'Donnell's famous Cheap
Pages (disregarding the many other references to Jim Michalak's boat
in his own webpages).
Well, tanks for the nice comment -- I haven't been maintaining those Cheap
Pages for several years, because I went over quota on the web server --
it's OK if it remains static, but if I want to change anything it requires
forking over more money for a commercial account there.
The Cheap Pages will move sometime to its own domain (thecheappages.com) --
question of time.

- Sorry about this delay, Kev. A whole lot of good reasons for this... Your inquiry ended up in the wrong hopper.
Thanks for your interest.
Yes both plans are available. 'Jochems' has been built a number of times. 'Amherst Galley' not yet, surprisingly, as she reflects a range of increasingly relevant issues between human-power, safety under sail, speed, light weight, etc.
Plans to build one boat, sent rolled in a tube, are:- #639 "William D. Jochems" on 5 sheets of 22"x34" = $300.-
- #643 "Amherst Galley" on 7 sheets of 22"x34" = $325.-
I hope that this still helps in your choice.

Hi, Just wondering if plans are available for the Amherst Galley, or the Jochems Schooner. Kev
