Dear Mr. Baron - In November,2000 I received my plans(set #8) from you. I was delighted with the simplicity of your plans.this was my 5th boat building project,but is the biggest boat i have built to date. I used epoxy through the project both as the bonding agent,and as an ecapsulant.I changed the plans only on the side decks,as I would like to add a small pilothouse at a later date(maybe). I recently finished the boat,and would like to share with you my version of your lumber yard skiff. Everyone who has seen the boat can not believe how ruggedly this is built.As well as how nice the lines are.I live in central New York,around the finger lakes region,and to see a boat around here with these lines is to say the least,a little unusual. It has been a great retirement project.Now I can't wait for the weather to get better so I can put the motor on,and head to the lakes!!!!! It was a well thought out design,and an easy boat to build.I would recommend it to anyone who wants a "do-it-yourself" boat project.Thank you. - Bob Goeckel
