Re: Strip: Strip Design Choice
In Response To: Strip: Strip Design Choice ()

Hi,

I haven't built either of the boats you are considering, but I am in the process of building a smaller Cape Ann design. I found the plans very well prepared, the advice in Vaclav's book and online excellent, and his support prompt and thorough. I am very happy with my decision to buy one of his plans, and I am sure that if you choose the Cape Ann, you will not be disappointed.

Good luck with your project,

Best regards,

Allan Edie
