I am happy to announce that I have created a yahoo-group on
inflatable boats. Now join if you like, I would appreciate any input,
photo's, stories etc.
I built a small page for the messabout. Not much, but I think it
will do the job.

I have two boats for sale (my wife says) Matt Layden Paradox on good
galvanized trailer, practically new sail and an outboard bracket $500 -
Martha Jane, think this is probably boat #1, it needs work, on a tandem axel trailer $2500.
My wife says 'for immediate sale and removal' - IF YOU CAN'T MAKE A DEAL WITH ME CALL HER!

I found a great deal on a brand new Coleman 9x13 cabin tent with the doors in the end. The Tentboat hull is now 6x21 with a max beam of 7 feet with
the side panels down and 9 feet with the panels extended for camping.
Planned power was supposed to be a 25 - 40 hp jet but we know the boat would be just as happy with a 25 hp outboard with a
prop. I've got to have shallow water so I can hide out on the shallow
trout rivers and avoid the crowds. Jim Michalak figured the draft for me and said
she would float at 3.5 inches loaded! So, here's the concept drawing of
Tentboat. I plan to construct her in late winter or early spring (after
the shop and Jetfish). Hopefully she will be ready for the messabout next

Attached a couple of photos of harrigami, 35' folding, trailerable
Photos show half hull planked waiting for the edge glue to cure (timber is
Paulonia, Chinese hardwood, 85% the weight of cedar, 1/3rd the price), and
same hull, ready for glassing.
35 hours to this stage, including drawing
and cutting frames, setting up strongback and frames and planking.
