Back in Action
Well, we've completed our four-month National Geographic Expedition voyaging through the Mediterranean exploring the origins of the olive and how this humble fruit shaped our modern world. Things have been very hectic since arriving home due to a family emergency combined with Julie undergoing surgery, however, we're getting back on track again.
The store is scheduled to open in the New Year, and we will be selling plans for the Expedition and Cambridge Racer. Plans for the Cruiser Rowboat and the Salamander will be available later in the spring.
A few people have asked about kits. We have been trying for a long time to have kits available for some of our designs, but have come to the conclusion we are simply stretched too thin to get kits going in the near future. We want to make sure we have the time to produce top quality kits - not something slapped together in a hurry.
The good news, however, is that building from full-sized plans isn't really that much more difficult than building from a kit, and you have the satisfaction of constructing the vessel entirely yourself. One of the most important things when building from plans is being able to source quality materials for a reasonable price. In the next few months we plan to list a compilation of some of the best sources around the world for marine plywood, epoxy supplies and other essential boat-building materials.
We look forward to seeing you out in some of our vessels, and in the meantime, a Merry Christmas and Happy New year to all.
