  • You don't see these every day. Yarrow is one of the prettier Bolger day sailers. $5,500. http://www.ebay.com/itm/331297349990

  • There is basically nothing on a plywood boat that is not reasonable fixable! $4,500 for a 39 footer, what a steal! On Thu, Aug 7, 2014 at 7:42 AM, gc4248@^$1 [bolger] < bolger@^$2 > wrote: 1. If it was reasonably fixable ...

  • Just in case everyone doesn't see the obvious here: The PB&F LCU (F) "Landing Craft Utility - Fast" (visualize a folding schooner on steroids) seems on the verge of becoming a reality in the USA military.

  • > i found that the one extreme weakness of the design is the wide flat bottom with substantial rocker. > Arthur Stutz No doubt. Shoal draft displacement sail boats must have bottoms like this!
