    Default New book - "Forty-Five Wooden Boats"

    It's been 21 years since WoodenBoat put out Volume 3 in their series of study plans. Volume IV is available as of yesterday. I'm chuffed, for reasons.

    Aw, man... They didn't put those stupid bed sheet boats in there, did they? (Gosh, some may not know I own three sof boats, and one frame I can't get rid of, ever.)

    I have no idea why you would be chuffed (), but congratulations. For, erm, whatever.

    I guess I have to buy it to satisfy my compulsion for complete sets of books.

    Peace,
    Robert

    Good reasons - and so you should be. You've also worked hard to get there. Mike puts together some interesting stuff.

    I see why he's chuffed, its under kayaks.

    But I don't know what chuffed means - is that a Nor'easter word?

    Brit origin.

    Mr. Gentry has not just a kayak, but THREE (3) boats included. Huzzah!!

    Oh wait... they included KAYAKS? Now THAT is a fad that'll never last.

    Oh, crapt... Hi Harvey... I dint see you standing there <G>

    OK, if you wouldn't spoon feed me.
    I googled the defination of Chuffed.

    I did notice 3 Gentry boats, but thought I'd let someone else score points

    "pleased, happy," c.1860, British dialect, from obsolete chuff "swollen with fat" (1520s). A second British dialectal chuff has an opposite meaning, "displeased, gruff" (1832), from chuff "rude fellow," or, as Johnson has it, "a coarse, fat-headed, blunt clown" (mid-15c.), of unknown origin. Related: Chuffed.

    Good for you, Dave! And I totally get it about the SOF boat. It's nearly impossible to get a better ratio of fun-to-be-had to dollars-spent than a skin-on-frame kayak, and I can even say that despite now having been to Phuket, Batam, and Siem Reap.

    I did not know that both meanings went so far back. I did know that chuffed, and got right on my chuff was in common use in the WWI trenches as displeased, and then in the late 20thC the meaning flipped to happy, or dis-chuffed for annoyed.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Nice, Dave...and thanks for the tip: I'll be buying a copy.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    Congrats, Dave. If I can squeak one more boat past my wife, it'll be one of your SOF designs.
    The other three volumes of Wooden Boats have been sitting on my nautical bookshelf for decades, soon to be joined by this new fourth one.
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    I got this book for Christmas and I'm enjoying it. It's great dream material.

    I plan to add it to my library - but it hasn't shown up at my local bookstore yet.
