    Default John Gardner's Centennial plans. Help, please!

    Good day, gentlemen!
    Can anybody give scans of chapter 6 from John Gardner's book "Wooden boats for build and use"?
    I need chapter about "Centennial" only, and some problems to buy this book from Amason, etc.
    My mail: ivan251080@gmail.com
    Help please!

    I wonder if Dan Noyse has something? He has recently built an excellent rendition of Centennial. He will probably eventually notice this thread. --Wade

    This image is available on google, what sort of info do you need? I do not have a scanner but could access one... not sure how I'd get the files to where they need to go... or I could photograph relevent pages that would be lots easier, I could post here.

    boats to build and use may be available from our host Wooden Boat, have you tried contacting them?



    here we are sailing this past weekend!

    looks like he lives in a pretty far-out locale in Russia, a simple web purchase might not be very simple or economical.

    im sure someone on the forum has the book and a scanner (or a camera)

    I don't know how it works on a PC but on my MAC the 'photos' hooks with very high quality to the gmail. Works best to send one pic per email. Ivan can turn that into the size of the original book - or even larger - with ease and accuracy. Loading pics into the computer and then emailing is the way to go.

    I had the scans of that chapter and sent them to him, so he's good to go.

    G'day from Australia Ivan, welcome aboard. From the ariels your home town looks pretty sparsely populated. The river looks wide but lots of bars, what's the tidal range?

    As far as shoal draft and seaworthyness go it's pretty tough to beat Cent. she is very happy drying out on a mud flat as well.
