Re: Scanning for pirated copies of Boats With An Open Mind
- I have never sold copies of any plans that would be wrong it is not your property to sell I have built more then one copy of a boat from a book and used it and found what I did not like I sold the first one and improved the second one I have been of the opinion for quiet some time now if a person cannot build any of the skiffs from just the book they should not be building LOL the plans and keys are really that complete easy peasy and a few of the larger ones are just as easy as the skiff :)

The original "Instant Boats" with the Teal is gone, too. "Build the New Instant Boats" and "Boatbuilding With Dynamite Payson" are still there.

That's really weird -- it's not there now. I have it in my Kindle account, and it used to be available by Kindle, but it's not there now.
It got removed about a year or so back.
I have it on my kindle also.
