Fer-A-Lite & Wire Plank

Announcing the availability of Fer-A-Lite Mortar Mix and Wire Plank. This material has not been readily available since 1986. This variation on Ferro-Cement construction has a proven strength and longevity that exceeds all others.

Our company flagship is a 1982 Samson C-Ranger that is constructed of Fer-A-Lite. During the process of barrier coating the hull I became so impressed with the material, I sought out and purchased the rights from the previous manufacturer.

We are looking for a 30 to 35' wooden power boat, in the Tampa, FL area to re-skin with this material for part of our marketing campaign. We currently have a wooden 55' Schooner that will be re-skinned in the spring.

Go to www.fer-a-lite.com for more information as it is made available.

I would not call them dead sites

Friday Feb 8, we moved our servers to a new "temporary" location while we revamp the old offices.

On Sunday Feb 9, we had all servers, and phone systems back up and functioning.

We did lose email for 48 hours. But other than that we are here and shipping product.

www.smallyachts.com

as well as

www.fer-a-lite.com are alive and well

Content on smallyachts is undergoing a tune up.

And our ketch "Ishtar" should be back in the water in time for next seasons shows.

We are back up, finally. Port 80 issue on verizon's side. Second move of the webserver in less than a week, but all is back on line.

Thanks for calling it to our attention. And thank you for your patience.
