Problems with the #Kindle versions of My Books

Note:

As of February 2012, the Kindle files should be updated so the issues discussed below no longer apply. If you continue to experience readability issues with you Kindle additions of The Strip-Built Sea Kayak or Building Strip-Planked Boats, please try reloading the books from Amazon. If you see any other problems, please let me know.

Hardcopy Plans Catalog

If you like to have a little reading material hanging around the house I've put together a print version of my plans catalog. You can either get it for free by going to the Scribd site to download a PDF or you can get have MagCloud print out a nice bound and glossy copy and send it to you:

Print Catalog

Believe it or not, there are still people out there who prefer reading a good, old-fashioned print catalog over going online and browsing through web pages. In fact, you may be one of those people. If so, I have put together a catalog. Due to the scale of my business and the demand for catalogs, it does not make sense to print up 20,000 copies at a time. Instead I have found a print-on-demand publisher who does a great job at a reasonable price. MagCloud was developed by Hewlett-Packard to print magazines.

Guillemot Kayaks on FaceBook

For those of you who have caught the Facebook bug, I've put up a Guillemot Kayaks Page. I've posted a few videos and will maintain an events calendar there. Feel free to become a fan and post comments.

Canoe & Kayak Trailer For Sale

SOLD

I have an excellent Canoe and Kayak Trailer for sale. It was made by MO Trailers and it is their Long Ranger model. While I really like this trailer it is too heavy for my poor little Subaru to tow. The trailer is extremely well built with heavy gauge welded steel construction, you can climb all over it load boats.

Kayak Painting

Janne Matter Stitch and Glue Night Heron Painting John Harris (the owner of Chesapeake Light Craft ) sent me this print he picked up on one of his trips to Port Townsend, Washington. The picture is a painting called "Stood-Up" by Janne Matter,

Community

There is a whole community of people out in cyberspace who are into kayaks and other small boats, either building them or using them or even just admiring them. Below are some links to a few places where you can get to know some of these people.

Website Upgrade

Well, it has taken a while but I finally have the latest version of my website content management system up and running. The new system finally brings my online catalog into the main website proper which should make it easier to find what you want to find. Also, I hope I have made it easier for you to contribute pictures of the boats you have built.

Catching Up

It has been a long time since I have made any new entries on my blog. I hope my excuse is considered a good one. I've just been too busy, not only have I been helping Chesapeake Light Craft get my designs into their kit catalog, but I have been building boats, writing and buying a new house.

I am just now finishing up the boat building projects and will be delivering a microBootlegger out to Cape Cod later this week. I also just finished up a Night Heron and delivered that out to Long Island.
