Subject: Build Your Dream Boat
Date: 15 March 2009

Hi Gayle,

I enjoy your emails, and your “Family Atmosphere.” I think your father started a great company and it is fantastic that you are following in his foot steps.

Attached is a movie clip of me building the Power Skiff 14 (13’4" finished? It shrunk.. Free Smiley Face Courtesy of I ordered the plans in December, 2008 and was in the water by late February; the movie will show it all... I hope you enjoy it.

I built it mostly for the experience and I did learn a lot, so I am now prepared for the next project. Probably a restoration project of a larger sailboat, if I can find a suitable boat.

Kind regards,
