    I see Daniel's post of Egress' lines and profile has been deleted by photobucket for some reason, so I'm reposting it as an attachment.

    Yep; I think she's a great combination of practical and pretty.

    The best part is the boom, because it means I'll never throw out my back trying to tote a keg of beer aboard.:D

    Does Paul have a website or something, I would be really interested in some of his designs. I have recently been well about to be medically discharged from the military due to an injury and it seems I may need a biugger boat, hehe.
    Dont tell the wife.
    As for getting the kegs on board the boom would be perfect you could also use it to swing some big game fish up for photos heheh

    LOL, you mean Riccelli Yacht Design? :p ;)

    And let me add - one of the most knowledgeable guys here, when it comes to boat building techniques, always ready to share his knowledge with those who need help or advice (like I needed it a year ago - thanks PAR).

    Sorry about that, and I also lost the beautiful Schooner Paul designed.
    I don't know waht I did. I will investigate.

    Photobucket may have decided you were reproducing copyrighted material, and just deleted it from your account. They're pretty quick on the trigger sometimes.

    It's likely the photo was "inactive" for a while and they broke the link. Both Floom and Egress pictured on this page and the schooner (Emily Rose) are in my gallery here.

    Good to see you back again Archie. I hope your project is bouncing along nicely.

    I talked to Paul this morning; he's planning to drop the completed plans for Egress in the mail Monday morning (June 4th). That's a little later than originally planned, but stuff happens....

    Can't wait to have the plans actually in my hands; I'm like a kid waiting for Christmas morning to finally get here.:D

    It's ok imo, better a little later but well-done than done on perfect schedule but in haste... Haste makes waste. ;)
    I'm sure you'll get a nice boat from PAR.

    Cheers

    I totally agree. And the delay was due to unavoidable circumstances, so I'm not complaining. I'm just excited about the plans being on the way...:)

    I would be excited as well....
    A 6 page study plan from PAR on Floom caused me many hours of research,sleepless nights and endless daydreaming...
    Good luck on your future build...
    Cheers

    I've got 3/4's of the sheets printed out Troy. I'll finish them up tomorrow and the plans will ship out Monday as planned, and per our conversation this morning. With some luck you'll get them before next weekend, depending on how fresh the ponies over at the USPS are, next week.

    I like Floom, too. But she's too much boat for me to trailer from lake to lake, and casually stash at home in between. And although I'm probably prejudiced, I think Egress is prettier...;)
