    FYI: The Podcast link doesn’t work in Google Chrome:

    “This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.”

  2. BTW, listening via IE – the synthesized voice is not very listenable, IMO. I stopped listening after about 30 seconds.

  3. that is a great website…I would like to build a shanty boat some day. I have a 1976 f26 trojan cabin cruiser now this is my 24th summer on a boat I love it thanks skipper

  4. Hello Bryan, I’m happy to see someone is building a Micro 10. This is a design I’ve been interested in for some time. Here is some documentation of a Micro 8, you may have seen it already. So, do you think this design can “dig in” and sail to wind? I once contacted Paul Fisher and asked him if the design could be extended to say, 16 feet. He replied it would be no problem. Good luck with the build, cheering you on here.

  5. Hi again, could you give me a price on the Adventure Craft AC2800.

  6. Dear Editor,

    I discovered your site and think that it is great. Congratulations.

    I am also very interested in the Haber 20 Shanty Boat from Poland. Do you know of any North American distributers or contacts of people who have one of these in the US or Canada?

    Thank you,
