“Your downloads are ready” will be the subject line of an email you’ll receive from us—once we’ve processed your digital order. That email has the link to click, so you can then download the file.
This isn't an "instant" process, so if we're asleep, you may need to wait for regular business hours for us to process the order. Although we are quite timely, we may not be processing on weekends & holidays.
There is a reason that John G. Alden's "Malabar" line of sailboats is a touchstone of American yacht design. From the salty Malabar I, to the perfect Malabar IV, to the iconic and photogenic Malabar X, the entire line of sailboats is an example of the best in yacht design. However, for those preferring a schooner that can be sailed and maintained by a sailing couple or competent individual, it is hard to beat Malabar II. The study plans offered by The Wooden Boat Store are clear, concise, easy to read, and truly beautiful. I might have mine framed!
interesting but a little concise.interesting historical description.
