      Hi Frank,

      I came across the Shoe Boat. That guy has a mind like yours. If it looks like a boat and floats like a boat it must be a boat!

      Membership seems to have jumped in leap and bounds! Many of the new members are "senior" wanting to get reaquainted with their past or to aquaint the kids or grandkids with a real live steamboat. Good for you!. I hope that it makes you proud.

      That "Science Toymaakers Website and DUCKWORKS are both great resources. I've uploaded files and made links to both sites. I particularly like this wooden boat:


      It's an easy design that give some flexibility in shape etc. The heatshield is a nice touch. I've pasted into a WORD DOC and then converted to a PDF to download to the File Folder "Pop-Pop Plans".
