NOTICES: We're posting up early for Sunday because we have a full day ahead tomorrow and we've decided not to miss the Zyphyrs vs Red Hawks game. The weather will not crack 90 in New Orleans on Monday, or so we are told, so we're going for it. For Sunday we introduce you to Amazon's big collection of small boat plans books and "how to" building manuals. But be sure to read our suggestions before following our links to the boat building book shelf, not all "books of plans" are created equal. We found the bar open at the Fleet Reserve in Annapolis and introduced you to a pretty blonde who swims with sharks yesterday, those posts are still up if you missed them. The weekend is looking good.
