Congratulations to Jacques and Joel on a fantastic design and set of plans, Bateau just keeps getting better. I'm so imp...

FL26 Progression - hehehe - I'm Back!

Plans are ordered. I can't wait to get started on this boat. I will keep you all informed on the progression and do my usual trick of lots of photos on my website and a running commentary. I'll probably be boring the pants of you :) I have long service starting in March so I have 3 months to myself ...

I am going to throw my 5c worth in on this one - Jack, the guy you have been talking to knows "jack" about Bateau, the guys who run it and the support they give. I'm from Australia, who had not built anything of any consequence at all before, but with Bateau and the folks from here I have now succes...

Larry, I'm hoping early next year as well - I have Long Service Leave due 1st March 2008, 3 months paid leave - and my aim is to have it finished by the end of that time. Even better, when the plans are released to actually start before March (it's spring here at the moment) and to actually enjoy it...

oops - sounds like "the drafter" may be in for a talk :) I'm waiting on this one too Larry.

Thanks Guys - I'm glad it helped you Larry, all my photos weren't a waste :D Gerry, I'm seriously thinking of the DE25, long cockpit version, I really like the style. I have long service leave coming up later in the year - a whole three months paid holiday - a great time to build "the big one" Jeff

OD18 and SC16 Construction Website Back Up...

The website describing my construction of a OD18 and SC16 is back up again. I got tired of the old one so I have designed a new and improved one.
