We know that Bob has retired to build his Slim and go cruising. The Professor has earned it and I look forward to seeing his boat in the Whitsundays.
I'm sure I was not the only one caught by surprise when he shut up shop, with no real warning. I was seriously contemplating buying
plans for the 10m plywood
Slim. (The only Oram boat that I could dream of affording!)
here, 44C, is (I believe) in touch with Bob. I wonder if Bob would be interested in selling stock plans, on the understanding that the buyer does not get any of his time or input?
It would help his cruising kitty, and there are enough people on multi forums
to ask for advice. Also there are a few professional builders who are experienced with building his designs.
