Re: [bolger] Re: Micro Plywood Thickness
- Greetings Nels, I am a lurker on this board-Getting interested in building either a Micro or a San Francisco Pelican. I am interested in the link to Peter Lenihan's changes to the Micro (Lestat-?). Could I possibly see a copy of the letter from Phil referencing this Micro? I am willing to pay any costs incurred.
Thank you Reggie (Micro wanna be?) fiddlers__green@...

Bolger was fully in support of the scantlings and additions for Peter
Lenihan's Micro Lestat when he was aboard at the 1993 Woodenboat Show.
I have a hand written mail from Phil from 2003 saying it
was "extremely well built."
Here is a link to Peters changes so you can't go wrong following them
as much as feasible considering present price realities for materials.
I would also love to see an article by Peter regarding his finishing
and painting schedules. The old pirate really has those techniques
down pat as well:-)
