Comments from Brian Fox who is building a Centennial Spray 38.
You are to be congratulated for the content of your book Metal Boats, it provides an excellent reference book which covers many areas of interest to the amateur builder which other marine writers with their "how and what to do books" have neglected, I am very satisfied with my purchase of it. I have also enjoyed tremendously your book about Joshua Slocums "Spray"; again, there is plenty of useful information for "Spray" owners and builders to think about....BRIAN FOX
