Strip Cosine Wherry
I've been helping my friend build the most
beautiful strip cosine wherry. I am trying to convince him to
submit an article to you but I have been taking pictures and when
the snow flies we will do it. Here is a picture of the wherry
glassed on the outside, not faired but the rough skeg and keel
PS: I have attached the text of a post to the
Bolger group but received no replies. Maybe you can fold this
into your magazine. I feel the this is a good idea and done right
could be an amazing way to move a boat distances, securly, safely,
easy to store etc. Maybe my post was not clear but I bet someone
could make a drawing and finish the concept. I guess Bolger would
be the guy but there must be room for more geni.

Subject: Is there a design for pickup truck
In a discussion last summer we were wondering
if our great boat wizzard or anyone else has designed a 2 or
3 section boat for a pickup truck to carry nested then put together
when you are at the water. We only discussed the final product
and not the "how to".
We envisioned the first piece, probably
the stern section as
the "cap" for the pickup and the next section nested
underneath and the third section inside that with any gear under
it. The third section could be either a small cabin for the
forward section or an additional length to give a boat about
24 feet that bolts together ala TIMS at the now famous Kingston
All great things start with a dream.
So all you Bolgerados can
think about this one and respond accordingly. Here you go Bruce(S).
I really like the idea of travelling away from the snow and
ice with a great boat safely sitting on the back of the truck
for the journey then put it together, add a small outboard or
oars and away you go.
Paul McLellan still glowing from a great
month of cruising with the Bolger Houseboat #481 and trying
to get back to reality, or maybe the cruising is the reality.
