Re: No Alaska shipping on new website?

Curious where the boat was built where the kit had to ride the ferry? I grew up in Cordova where everything had to go in or out by boat or airplane; my family was in the freight business. Occasionally we’d have a freight forwarder look at the map to see where their “closest” agent was, and then with...

Re: No Alaska shipping on new website?

I usually just email Jeff/Reed directly, they are prompt with returning an order and shipping quote. I like knowing that it's a person checking my unique cercimunstances over an algorithm that may need correction after it during shipping and delaying things unnecessarily. I tend to operate more fro...

Re: No Alaska shipping on new website?

That’s at least better than what some outfits do, which is refusing to ship USPS at all (which generally costs them my business). It’s still a bit of a pain given the 4 hour time difference and need to call during business hours. This time I was just trying to order a couple sets of plans (I like ha...

What you missed about the Portland Pudgy is it is damnable heavy at 130 pounds.
Yeah I saw the weight, but thought it was worth mentioning anyways. No free lunch and all that.

Re: No Alaska shipping on new website?

I have ordered off the (old) BBC website before, so I am sure it was there.

Re: Woods Skoota 32DM

It's too bad there is not a larger model of the Portland Pudgy. Other than capacity and maybe the weight, it's exactly what FG wants.

Re: Row 13 or other?

I see now, if I had read the study plans description more carefully, I would have seen that the plans include a foam sandwich option. So if that's accurate, then you wouldn't need to do anything extra on my account.

A liferaft would have been safer than the dinghy the article says they had to cut loose because it filled with water... Not intending any offense.

Re: Row 13 or other?

I hadn't really thought of that aspect. Probably mostly flat water at any time she'd be likely to go out on the local lakes. She's rowed with the club in shells in some unpleasant weather, but I think there's an element of peer pressure involved since everybody is there and geared up for practice. S...
