You can see the design as Atkin intended if you can fuind pics of Doug Fryer's old boat AFRCAN STAR. This is the boat I used as an inspiration for Doug's next boat NIGHT RUNNER.
Bob, I think one of us is channeling the other these days. I just finished the chapter on Night Runner in your book, complete with the commentary on Lange phucking with your lines.

Why did Fryer let him get away with it?

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
