Hello everyone,

Thank you all for the positive feedback on the new website!

Currently, our site is down due to a technical issue with our web hosting company. We are not sure how long the site will be down. If you need to place an order please call Jeff or myself at 772-742-8535.

Thank you,
Reid

Here is what the website looked like back in 1996:

Thanks Brian. I searched the wayback machine and could not find it.

Congratulations on the website upgrade and also with your relocation! :D
I can’t recall a slicker upgrade with zero bugs.
Any plans for an open house event at your new location?

DOS... SHAREWARE.... I'm before this.... I'm old! Love seeing this.


Shareware and other files:

Some files currently available:
The 10 boats file: study plans for 10 small boats between 7 and 16', sail, oar or outboard. Nice pcx drawings with a viewer for DOS.

Thanks Brain....

I know that rolling out something like this always brings bug and broken link fixes so I am sure you are busy, but when will the study plans for the new foam dinghy be up?

Son of a biscuit! I’m swear I’m looking at that exact same boat on another site (but a 35). That one is aluminum. I wonder if I could scale that one down and make it S&G.

I tried to say something but God thought I was wrong and filled my mouth with saltwater. I kept my pie hole shut after that.

Richard,

We have talked about, just not sure when we would like to do something.
