Here are timely reports of interesting goings on from around the
boat building world. If you have pictures of anything of interest please send them

Wow. I've thought of lots of things to do with Bolger boats, never thought of
burning one though:

Come to think of it, it seems like Gregg Carlson and David Ryan have been pretty quiet in
the building dept. lately. C'mon guys, follow Jim's lead and you'll have the inspiration
(and room in the yard) for your next project. And what about Fatchen down under?
Seth Macinko (who is wondering who's bringing matches to the Lake
sending along a picture of the model I built to the design of the daysailer, scaled back up double size to a
cruiser, which was the original intent. As you can see from the model, the sides are
rather straight in the plan view and give the boat a slab sided appearance. Of course the
finish job doesn't help, but it's almost as much of a pain in the neck to fair a small
hull as it is a big one, though you don't get tuckered out as fast. Besides,I wanted the
thing built so I could see what she looked like. The only change I made in the daysailers'
lines was to bring the sheer down about two inches. Anyway, I thought you might be
interested. Any thoughts you might have about layout, rig, appearance or viability, I'd
love to hear from you. Sorry about the size of the files, but I made these
scans before I knew how to work the scanner.

(Note: David also designed Square Knot - 2nd place in design
on the ezine, thanx for the effort. Not sure if you're interested, but since you solicited
photos, I've attached a pic of a Glen-L 13 I built a coupla years ago. This is a 13-foot
cat-rigged ply and poxy day sailer. Really a sweet sailer, I like it a lot.
I'm currently starting construction of the Karl Stambaugh design, "Puffin
28", a 28-foot diesel cruiser, ply 'n' poxy also. I hope to document that
construction more than the GL-13.
Thanx again! Mike Keers
