    There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.

    I have tried both without response as well as his facebook page. Hope he is just on vacation and all is well.

    Still nothing. Hope he resurfaces soon.

    That is his old site. He hasn’t responded from emails to this one either.

    His last post to facebook was May 5. Found a listing that Dave Gentry Boats was in Harrisonburg, VA. Did a search for Dave Gentry Harrisonburg VA and found this obituary for a Dave Gentry, of Rockingham, burial in Harrisonburg. Don't know if it is the same Dave, does anyone on this site know him a little to know if this is "our" Dave Gentry.

    P.S. Wrong Dave, going through the pictures on Dave's facebook page, his wife's name is Anna so the obituary is for someone else named Dave.

    Just when I want to build one of his designs, he falls off the face if the earth.
    I hope all is well.

    Which boat, Rich? I have an unused set of his Chautauqua sailing canoe plans. I'm not likely to use them--they're yours if you want them.

    Those links worked for me. One says he's located near Tampa, maybe he's relocating away from hurricane territory?

    Odd that he doesn't respond to phone or e-mail queries though. Hope he and family are OK.
    I prefer true but imperfect knowledge, even if it leaves much undetermined and unpredictable, to a pretence of exact knowledge that is likely to be false

    He put all his plans on Duckworks at some point. If you get digital ones, they are immediate downloads; are you sure that mechanism is not still available? Related, probably Duckworks would be a reasonable place to check up on him, as obviously they have a better way to contact him than various (some of them outdated) websites!

    Thanks. I was thinking of building his 16' Rushton Ugo canoe.

    I went looking for that one too!

    But a UGO's not shown on Rich's website or among the listings of his designs on Duckworks either but an IGO is shown.

    Mystic Seaport has Rushton's original UGO as plans, so there's that.
