Looks like Jim's stretching of the Jumbo to 25 feet worked well.  Nice boat.

Dead link to the Ward's adventure, does anyone know if they moved it somewhere else or is it gone?

I looked around and could not find it. Found other links at Duckworks, but the links are all dead.

Checked the wayback machine, and they never indexed the page.

This is all I have:

I sent her an email to the last email address I had.  We'll see if I hear from her.  I'll let you kow if the blog has been moved and is available anywhere.  Last I corresponded with her was in May 2010.  Ken
