>>> Bolger Illinois

There has recently been a free-ranging and interesting discussion on the Bolger mailing list centered around the Illinois design. An interesting design published in Messing about in Boats in Dec. 1998. This is a BIG boat… 63’x10′ – Bolger‘s sharpie taken to an extreme. Most seem to consider it more a houseboat than a cruising craft, its still and interesting design.

The discussions and interest in 3-D modeling has led to other interesting ideas and discussions that will be fodder for some postings over the next day or so.
