    Does anyone have for sale or know where I can get a set of Bill Short's Great Pelican plans? I've tried a few email addresses I've come across on line and none of them are active.

    This is run by the designers widow. I don't know if it still exists or not. I don't think there is a "Grand" pelican.

    Yes, it's the Great Pelican I'm after. I tried the email but it came back as undeliverable. Maybe I'll try snail mail. Thanks.

    Thanks. Am a member of the Yahoo group and have received the plans from M. Short. They are a bit of a puzzle (was spoiled by the Bolger plans when I built my Micro) so any resources you might come up with would be appreciated. Am currently scouring the net for pictures of the build.

    Sorry, I don't have experience building a Pelican. But you might try asking your questions on either this forum or the Yahoo forum. Someone is bound to have an opinion! :)
