Ran Out of Design Books

The last of the Design Books just went into the Priority envelopes, and sent overseas. It doesn’t make sense to print any more. I used to sell several a week. Now it is rare since everything is online.  Plus postage has gone up drastically.

And my earlier guesses forward were not so good. I still have a box of VHS and another box of PAL construction manual tapes lying around.
I will discuss best path forward with Matthew at the IBEX.  Maybe the best is a link for a download.  This old book cover picture is the only one I found here on the laptop.

VW Catamaran

For some reason I can’t resist a quirky project. And with some people paying late, the cash flow helps.
This fellow wants to keep his prize VW, taken from his inefficient pontoon boat, and get a more efficient sled under it. I modeled it with the 36′ Boat in a Box charter hulls. It will require a lot less power now.  For the Mississippi River.  He will be notorious.

Foam Still Available

The most common feature that I hear about now with foam/glass multi builds is the difficulty in finding and getting core. I can’t believe this lot hasn’t been all grabbed yet. It has a waiting time of as soon as you pay for it.
It’s ideal for multis of 35 to 55 feet long. Bob Lanford, I gave seller your number that you gave me. It doesn’t work. Hit me with another way to contact you.
some glass is also still available.
prices are very good.

(Bead & Cove) Planks – 2.50″ Wide – 89.50″ Long = 235.75 sq. in.
235.75 sq. in. / 144 = 1.55381/sq. ft. per plank
120 sq. ft. /1.55381/sq. ft per plank = 77.2 planks

Plank Count /Box = 272 planks
5 Boxes = 1360 planks = 121,720.00 Inches/12 = 10,143.33 Total feet

Back Monday

A couple of jobs went thug demanding first in line, one with a brace of insults. So I have been working late every night and the office the office has been basically closed this week.

Been quite a while since I have been bullied. As usual the office seems to cost more than it brings in so I have to keep at it.
I should have them completed by Monday.
