      An Incentive to Start A Build Log - New Plan Set from the NRG   03/17/2018

      An Incentive for Starting a Build Log

      The NRG’s Generic East Coast Oyster Sharpie plan sets have been selling out – we had to reorder prints 2X already.

      BUT nobody has started a build log yet.  As an incentive we have decided to reward the first three (3) MSW / NRG members who purchase the plans and start and continue* actual build logs** from the plans. 

      The build logs should be started in the scratch built forum and labeled with Generic Sharpie – by “your ID”.  When we have six or more build logs up and running we will set up a group build area for the Generic Sharpie build logs.

      The winners will be able to pick any one of the prizes listed below:

      Free registration for one day at 2018 or 2019 NRG Conference                  ($145 value)

      Shop Notes 1 and 2 set                                                                         ($60 value)

      Nautical Research Journal – all content set                                              ($145 value)

      4 CD's or 1 flash drive         

      Continental Galley Washington Plan set                                                    ($65 value)

      1 year NRG membership or extension                                                      ($50 - $62 value)



      *“Continue” means that multiple posts containing build log content must be made for a minimum of 30 days after the initial post.  Logs will be tracked by starting date and the first 3 that have continued for 30 days following their initial post will be declared the winners.

      **Note the words “actual build logs” – no fair showing a few pieces of wood and going no further just to win. 


      The NRG has a new set of plans available for purchase with a free 200+ page full-color monograph .  Check the NAUTICAL RESEARCH GUILD NEWS forum below for details.  This plan set is developed for the first time scratch builder with limited tools and experience.  All materials are standard strip stock available from hobby wood suppliers.  However, it is also a great project for the more experienced builder looking for a smaller project to take a break from the bigger builds.  Remember MSW Members who provide us their real name are considered members for the discounted price.  An email or call to the office before you order with your real name and MSW user name before you order is needed for the discount code.

  1. Hello Ship[ Mates While it may be a bit early yet I do believe that I have solved my problem with my Text disappearing 1/2 way through my update post. Believe it or not, all I did was to switch my Browser from Chrome to Yahoo, I do like using Chrome but since the switch and with a lot of tests runs along with a few updates to the Form I have not had one of these experiences return since. I do hope that this will continue as it was a real pain to have to write an update 3 or 4 times, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  2. Hello Lately, when I go to make a post on the MSW Form, quite often when I get around 1/2 way through my reply and I hit the Enter key on my kea board my message just disappears and I have to start all over again. This problem appears to be only on the MSW Form. Have you come across this in your vast travels on the MSW Form. Lately, I have been copying as to be able to post if this should happen, and this sure is a pain. This all started to happen late last summer on my old PC, I got a new PC and I figured that my troubles were over but they still persist. I have resorted to writing in Word or sometimes in my mail and then copy and past into the MSW form. Can you help me resolve this very annoying problem, ENJOY? Regards Lawrence
  3. Happy Birthday celebrate it with Gusto. :cheers:
