I just received my March/April edition of Classic Boating mag, and who's on page 23?

Very cool....and well deserved!

Can I ask a question? Your front flagstaff: How long is it?

I'm looking for one about 13 - 15"....shortest I can find is 18", which is just too long for my boat. Need one for a 3/4" socket, too. Can't find one & I'm ready to borrow a friend's lathe.

Yours looks to be shorter than 18"...or is that just an illusion?

Thank you All! The flagstaff is a stock item. Not sure on the length. Right now it is tucked inside the boat. No idea where I bought it. I think a local store.

That's cool! It's neat to me that a boat designed and built past the millennium mark can be on the pages of Classic Boating.

It shows how truly timeless the designs are. Like good songs, movies, ideals, styles and many other things that carry on.

Roberta,
Congratulations! You are truly "queen of the boat builders" I believe what you have done inspires the rest of us to do better. As they say "all boats rise with the tide". The quality of everyone's builds keep getting better and better.
Thank You!

Congrats Roberta!

Is the 179 page guide that you wrote applicable to other builds as well? Is it available for purchase?

Here it is. http://www.boatdesigns.com/Torpedo-Cons ... fo/12-428/

It will apply to any cold mold design. And, much to others.
