    I didn't notice a boat at the ramp. Moon was out early though.

    Re 'Fun at the boat ramp'๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ™ˆ
    When first published, some years ago, Pete from Hungary demanded to know how I got hold of a photo of his girl friend๐Ÿ˜ฎ (My spies are EVERYWHERE๐Ÿ˜‰)
    How his Hungarian wife responded has regrettably not been recorded for posterity.
    But I'm relieved to see that Pete still posts now and again.
    And competes in the quizzes๐Ÿ‘
    Isn't that a great exhaust?

    Ya just never know what Google and Pinterest are gonna throw atcha!
    I remember once Googling 'Model boat plans' and amongst a few definitions of 'boat' and even fewer sources of plans (for all sorts of buildings and gizmos) were many more intriguing offers from, shall we say, 'Models of the night'!๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    Moral: be very careful what you search for and set your browser to erase all cookies and searches when closed. Can also highly recommend 'Crap Cleaner' to clear away the clutter and junk files after WEB browsing๐Ÿ‘

    Hi Bob, probably just the Schock name,- seemed like a coincidence them both being boat builders/designers etc. Edson Schock designed a lot of classic boats for the Mystic Seaport after his retirement, (around the same time as the Schock co in Cal started)- came from a line of naval architects going back to early Americas Cup days.

    Nice boat by the way.๐Ÿ‘

    jbkiwi: Probably not, my boat was built by Schock W.D. Associations in California sometime between 1969 and 1976 and was designed by a guy named Seymour Paul. Bob

    Hi hey-you, would you know if the glass W D Schock boats are in any way related to the old Edson I Schock designs ?. I have a New Zealand built 15 ft 'Sharron Potts' design (from Edson I Schock plans 1952- 'How to build small boats'), and while doing a bit of research, spotted the W D Schock company ( started So Cal 1958) and wondered if there was a connection (maybe his son?) Edson Schock was from Rhode Island.

    I would furnish my neighbors an entertaining half hour or so bringing my 21' Shock Santana to my dock under sail.โ›ต
