    Do they lift bans on here? I agree, this was one of my favorite builds in the 10-odd years I've been following the WBF. It's time we saw it's conclusion. What can be done about this?

    Darn I didn't take note of the date and blithely posted on! Please bring me up to date on the reason for the ban.

    Ban's are sometimes lifted. Scott usually lifts them after a suitable amount of time in the penalty box. There are some that are banned permanently as I understand it as well. Not sure what he did down there in the bilge but if he's gone for good, and I truly hope he's not, maybe Bob could conclude the story for us. He does weigh in from time to time but not often. Clearly he's a busy guy what with building this boat and all. Bob?

    I wonder if RodB would come back if the ban were to be lifted. Does anyone know how to get in touch with him?

    I know this build is going on somewhere down in Texas. I was anchored off of Sabine Pass waiting for orders back in September when I saw a schooner sailing out of the channel, an unusual sight to say the least for that neck of the woods. I hoped in vain that it might be the one but on closer inspection it was definitely not a Murray Peterson

    Hi Everyone!
    Sorry for the lack of progress and status updates.....life has been busy!....anyway, the boat is not wet yet, actually still in my yard.....we had extreme flooding last year in Texas....right when I was about to launch, the rains started, flooded the lake, wiped out the road to the lake, heck even the travellift was under water!....it took all year for the marina to recover.......Well things are finally back to normal and I'm now going to launch sometime soon....needless to say I'm very anxious!!.....I'll definitely get some pics posted....I truly hope Rod is "reinstated" soon....he contributes a lot to this site and really enjoys it....his work has inspired a lot of people and spurred numerous projects in the woodenboat community!
    Respectfully,
    Bob Albers

    Has there been any update on Susan? Is it in another thread?

    Thanks, David

    Thanks Dave - does anyone know if there is a decent biography on or book of Murray Peterson designs, along the lines of the excellent John Alden book by Henderson and Carrick?

    Cheers, David

    Rod B's pics, the shop, the build, were all so enticing when I joined this forum. Pictures of her sailing now are special; one with a 'bone in her teeth' would be outstanding! congratulations on your launch! / Jim

    That's fantastic news Bob! Congratulations on a beautifully executed vessel. Like zillions of others, I was following your careful progress faithfully and found your work to be truly inspiring. And now to see her afloat!

    I also agree wholeheartedly with your comments about Rod. I have no idea what his transgression was over in the bilge, but I would think that his conscientious efforts to document your work, and to share those photos with us, must count for something. I surely hope he's invited back from purgatory.

    It would be ideal if Rod could be reprieved but excluded from the bilge.
