I've been greatly entertained this week by these photos from Ben Crawshaw the Light Trow builder. They show a cardboard model he's made of the Julie skiff.

Hi Chuck,

I think you will find an article in the local paper here in Jacksonville FL interesting. The oddest thing is the way these boats were constructed.

This video is good. It can be used as a guide to create a name plate for a boat in one piece, which can be cut on a scroll saw. A good alternative to painting or glueing separate letters I think.

I've just watched Melonseed, the Movie and Heavy Weather on the Crawford MS site.  Looks like I picked a winner.  The description of wind forces on the sail in the text below the Heavy Weather video is quite interesting.  Looks like I'll have to get this baby finished before too long!

Here is an interesting video. It is really an advertisment for a DVD, but the cost of the disk is quite reasonable and it shows you how to build three, low cost, underwater video camera housings for snorkeling.
