(Above photos) - In a New York lake, Peter Fabbio’s BISCAYNE 22 looks fantastic coming or going.

"Dear Ken,

Enclosed are pictures of my completed boat, a BISCAYNE 18. Thanks for all of your help and the efforts you have made to offer this design... It has been a great project and as many have said, it is hard to say which is more enjoyable - building a boat or using it.

Words cannot express the pride I feel when people learn that I have built this [boat] from scratch. Most people are just amazed that a single person could create such a wonderful boat. You and your people have provided the means to make this possible and I thank you for that. Thanks again for everything and when I come to my next boat project I will look to your company for plans."

NOTE: Length option is done by respacing frames proportionately. These procedures are covered in the instructions, and the option comes automatically with the plans - no need to specify on your order.
