Wooden you beleaf it! Somebody has branched out, taken a leaf out of my book and made a sailing chip. I think that's going out on a limb in two or tree ways. They should stick to their own design. Not to beat about the bush, please leaf well alone.

  Those plans look too complicated for me.  :((  I would go barking mad trying to build it and feel a right sap when admitting defeat.

Five fore and aft sails? I'm surprised he didn't think of that schooner. Then again, perhaps he thought it wooden go.

{-)   {-)    {-)   ohhhh my God...yes,  sorry,  "five  fore
mast" no wood....Mast= "A substantial vertical spar used to support the sail and other spars"......In my country, mast, in spanish, means PALO ......  PALO  in inglish, is  wood.

If it does get stemmed I shall have to make a trunk call to Colin so we can stick a few more jokes on this theme (not that I have logged how many to date). Do you think he wood pick up the charges? I guess we could form a spliter group from those interested. Maybe we could meet at the arbor when we sail. I do hope I don't get boled over by the rush.

You know, I think those models would sail better if you gave the hull a good shrub down first, even better if the sailpan was a proper square twig.

  I think andyn has a problem with this thread.    :o  If we were to dig around we might get to the root of the problem.
  Could be that he can't see the wood for the trees.   %%

Hello there, this is Andy's mum. Your continuous tree jokes have led him to become insane and the nice men in white coats came to fetch him this morning. They've also taken his Zenoah Springer away...
