Thank you to Charlie Cobra and Sailing Dog
Your guidance about old threads, and the suggested Post about getting the most out of Sailnet - most helpful.

I hope that they saved that boat.

|sailingdog||Thanks Charlie, but some people are rather slow on the uptake..|

|CharlieCobra||Again! It is STILL an EIGHT YEAR OLD THREAD! I don't think you guys will get answers.|

I doubt that Greenearth much cares, as his post is almost EIGHT YEARS OLD. Please check dates before replying to dead threads. BTW, GreenEarth hasn't been active on Sailnet in almost eight years... so I doubt you'll get any response, even if you PM him.
Welcome to Sailnet. I'd highly recommend you read this POST to help you get the most out of sailnet

|CharlieCobra||Windships, I don't know how much luck you'll have getting answer from an 8 year old thread. You'd be better served to post some nonsense in the song thread or somewhere so you could PM GreenEarth.|

|Windships||GreenEarth - I am almost finished reading The Saga Of CIMBA, after meeting a niece of the author, near Santa Barbara. As a model builder, I find the schooner an intriguing subject, but of course - no lines, and so far only the one photo on the dustjacket. Suggestions welcome about other material -- and I am happy to reimburse for copies of drawings, photos, etc, if you can send particulars first. Thanks, and all the best with your own classic.|

She has a bowsprit. I''m not sure how she was built but she is yellow pine below and white pine above the waterline. No, she is not in Nova Scotia, she is here on the Central Coast of California in Morro Bay. I''m not sure about not taking them into tropical climates as the "Cimba" did just that and Nelly Bly was on her way at one time too.
As far as Langille''s boats not surviving - I''m not sure about Nelly because everyone says this boat was built "particular." Either way, she is here and still kicking and hopefully will for some time to come.
I would love to know more about Langille so any history or places you know that I can get information I would love to have.
Thank you. Paula
