I have sailed with Ted on this boat many times and can attest to it being an excellent boat in every detail. Google "Siesta Key Sailing Club" to learn more about this group of senior sailors and their small mini-cruisers that race 4 months of the year on lower Sarasota Bay below Point Crisp. We try to get in 8 races in each of 4 months but the winter months often have too heavy winds to allow that to happen. This club has been going for over 28 years and Commodore Charles Kilbourne remains the Commodore after all these years. Watch how an Emirates Airbus A380 and a Jetman Dubai duo flew together in a breathtaking formation flight over Dubai to make aviation history, in this exclusive behind the scenes video. I brought home one of the ITO model boats in 1952 from when I was there as an Ensign on the USS Nicholas DDE 449. They were heavy into the AMYA A Class boats with vane steering that were even larger - up to 72”. In 1994, I moved to Sarasota, Florida upon retiring and contacted the AMYA with my proposal.
I think I have found most of the large J-Boat model builders since that business has virtually dried up. I am rebuilding my web site that features laser cut frames for any model boats that plans are available for. There is a new way that makes it easier to find models and plans than on the original web site. The recently launched new J-Boat Topaz will be added as soon as I find the lines and photos of her. Some of the hardware Bill French uses is from "Wet Goose", owned by Ken Valk and listed lower on this web site as a good source.
The standard deck fittings and the sockets for the roof mounted handrails are beautiful solid brass. There are over 5,000 files taking 2.8 Gigabytes on an 8 Gigabyte memory stick provided post paid.
This is a UK Model Yacht Association national class which is particularly suitable for lakes with restricted depth and sheltered wind conditions. Ernie Mortensen of La Jolla, CA provided the photos and information about the 36" Box Rule Models. Built from the generosity of Lois Thebaud, a Franco-American summer resident of Gloucester, Massachusetts, for whose wife the schooner was named, Gertrude L. Milton retired to Sarasota, FL in 1994 after 35 years in sales and marketing at IBM in the National Accounts Division at White Plains, NY. He sailed and raced the family's Pearson Ariel with the Long Island Sound MORC fleet for 8 years.
The Extreme Sailing Series has announced plans to make the change to the foiling GC32 for next year's series. Extreme Sailing Series™ owners and organisers OC Sport, who recently announced a switch of racing platform to a foiling yacht, can now confirm that the Series will fast track to the GC32 catamaran to replace the existing Extreme 40 fleet in time for the 2016 season, as part of a long-term strategy and collaborative partnership with The Great Cup BV. The Extreme Sailing Series was launched in 2007, having developed the one design Extreme 40 catamaran which has been in use for all nine seasons. The Extreme Sailing Series, the world’s leading Stadium Racing Series, will celebrate its tenth season in 2016 with the introduction of a fleet of foiling GC32 catamarans, which will see the world’s top sailors ‘flying’ in front of thousands of spectators at premium venues around the globe.
The super-light GC32 foiling catamarans can reach speeds of almost 40 knots (46mph) and, like the bigger yachts used in the America’s Cup, they appear to ‘fly’ over the water as they lift off the surface and accelerate.
The switch to foiling will also bring forward a refresh of the Extreme Sailing Series format, which will now incorporate Pro-Am racing on short courses, and open water racing where venues permit. Today’s announcement of a switch to GC32s from the start of the 2016 season is part of a longer term commitment by OC Sport and The Great Cup BV (builders of the GC32s), as Laurent Lenne, CEO of the company behind GC32s, summarised: “Together we aim to develop the GC32 as a global and accessible class for both professional teams of all levels and private owners wanting to experience high speed big boat foiling and racing, and we will use the powerful marketing platform of the Extreme Sailing Series to achieve our objectives. The common strategy defined by OC Sport and The Great Cup aims to enlarge the market for foiling boats, to make it more dynamic, and to take events to new territories that remain of commercial importance to the long-term stakeholders of the Extreme Sailing Series and to the existing and future owners of GC32s.
Importantly for the development of the sport and the foiling market, OC Sport and The Great Cup have a shared vision of developing a global sporting pyramid, with the mid-term introduction of a series of feeder events providing a clear path to the Extreme Sailing Series, which will remain at the top. Andy Tourell, Event Director of the Extreme Sailing Series, elaborated: “The mid-term plan is to organize several GC32 continental circuits for professional teams and private owners, who could later access the Extreme Sailing Series global circuit.
This is to alert others about the dangers of Melanoma and tell others about the new Immuno Therapies, KEYTRUDA, YERVOY and OPDIVO and their costs. OPDIVO is provided is infused every 2 weeks and works something like KEYTRUDA which is infused every 3 weeks. T-Cells from Melanoma Tumors of a patient, multiplying them in the lab and then re-infusing them into the patient after modifying them to make them stronger. The great toe was excised to the first joint on August 15th, 2014 along with the sentinel lymph node and 2 others.
Then in April 2015 my melanoma broke out as a large rash area on my right leg that establishes it as In-Transit melanoma which is very serious. Disappointedly, the Health Newsletter below states that only one in four (25%) respond to KEYTRUDA.
I had developed a high sense of urgency since KEYTRUDA was indicated as the best treatment over 5 weeks ago!
He advised that KEYTRUDA is not TOXIC and very different from YERVOY, the first Immunotherapy Drug released 7 years earlier. Aetna insurance coverage confirmed by my calls to them and Merck that I will have 100% coverage by Aetna. Moffitt had held up treatment without telling me why while they confirmed that I would not have copays. The melanoma rash blisters will become inflamed and enlarged while the white and T cells fight the cancer cells. It is not known if KEYTRUDA will increase my longevity because there is not enough history. Per the Healthline Newsletter below, there is only a 25% chance that my body will not respond to KEYTRUDA and probably only a 10 - 15% chance to have a complete remission if it works at all.
The FDA's recent approval of Keytruda could be the start of a golden age of chemotherapy drugs that target the PD-1 pathway. New drugs to treat cancer come along pretty regularly, and, to gain approval, each one must outperform the current standard treatment. Now, there’s hope among researchers and pharmaceutical companies that a drug approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) earlier this month will pave the way toward bigger gains against cancer.
Keytruda and others still in the FDA approval pipeline disrupt a process by which cancer cells tell the immune system not to attack them as intruders.
Keytruda and a handful of other drugs that target the same process are “the hottest area in cancer research,” according to Dr. Scientists have long known that cancer somehow tricks the immune system in order to grow and spread.
We can imagine the immune response as like a car at an intersection, looking for a green light telling it to move forward and attack cancer cells, or a red light telling it to remain stopped, Lipson said.
The current optimism comes from observations that green lights on this particular pathway send a lot of cancer-fighting traffic through. The competition among drug companies is good news for patients because it means that more drugs of this type are being researched.


As for why Big Pharma is so keen on anti-PD-1 drugs, the usual suspects are to blame: their price point and the potential size of the market.
Keytruda will sell for roughly $12,500 per patient per month, making it the 6th most expensive drug on the market, according to the trade publication FiercePharma. Drug manufacturers, doctors, and patients hope that more patients will respond to the drugs if they’re used in combination.

Opdivo works by inhibiting the PD-1 protein on cells, which blocks the body’s immune system from attacking melanoma tumors. Other FDA-approved treatments for melanoma include ipilimumab (2011), peginterferon alfa-2b (2011), vemurafenib (2011), dabrafenib (2013), trametinib (2013) and pembrolizumab (2014). Opvido is being approved under the FDA’s accelerated approval program, which allows approval of a drug to treat a serious or life-threatening disease based on clinical data showing the drug has an effect on a surrogate endpoint reasonably likely to predict clinical benefit to patients. Opdivo’s efficacy was demonstrated in 120 clinical trial participants with unresectable or metastatic melanoma. Opdivo’s safety was evaluated in the overall trial population of 268 participants treated with Opdivo and 102 participants treated with chemotherapy. 3) Radio control models with fin keel and spade rudder replacing the full keel of the original design.
Even more stablity is provided by the deep fin keel to compete with other AMYA 36" Class conforming models.
The center profile panel makes it very easy to set up the frames with matching slots in the profile.
The finished yacht had some 15 plus coats of paint and varnish hand applied then “Wet and Dry” sanded between coats. Fin and bulb keels are available from Victor Model Products of Downing, CA and the Star 45 Blog spot. Two half-model plaques with sails and rigging were made for Nantucket IOD Fleet members to give as gifts to their crews. I am making a Stuart Knockabout 28 by first making a plank-on-frame half model balsa wood pattern and then making a hard wooden copy. Custom made models and shadow boxes are provided for holding flags, medallions and memorabilia. Below the Boat is an online store selling the 3-dimensional lakes and sandy shores I first came across. Starting with a bathymetric chart (the underwater equivalent of a topographic map), the contours are laser-cut into sheets of Baltic birch and glued together to create a powerful visual depth. Each are designed in the United States (Northern Michiagn), crafted in a family-owned shop overseas, and imported.

Fortunately,the origin images were saved in the online Angelfire files for rebuilding this web site. It offers virtually complete freedom in design provided that the boat in racing trim and with the exception of fittings, rig and sails, fits completely into a rectangular measurement box 37” long, 9” wide and 1l” deep. Thebaud, the 132' American fishing and racing schooner was built in Essex, Massachusetts in 1930. Thebaud was well liked and proved to be an outstanding ambassador for the port of Gloucester.
While working at IBM, he built a Star Class 3909 and a Jet 14 which he raced at Lake Hopatcong YC in NJ and Island Heights YC on Toms River, NJ. This year’s eight event tour is travelling through Asia, Europe, and Australia, with the format highlighting ‘stadium’ short-course racing in front of the public. The 2016 season will again feature a full grid of professional and brand-backed sponsored teams racing at iconic venues as diverse as Saint Petersburg, Cardiff and Sydney. But the Extreme Sailing Series will continue to remain true to its core proposition – the hugely successful Stadium Racing concept pioneered by OC Sport since 2007, which has changed the way sailors, sponsors, media and fans engage with sailing. Both partners are also working on launching an annual GC32 World Cup, accessible by all existing boats. Chu confirmed that 1% or less of his patients have experienced serious side effects which is a big relief. Chu confirmed that my melanoma rash on my leg and abdomen will become fiery as the white and T cells fight the melanoma cells and eventually disappear. But the share of patients who respond to a new drug can be modest, and the months of life they gain by using it are, sadly, often counted in the single digits. The drug, pembrolizumab (Keytruda), is designed to treat melanoma skin cancer, which kills almost 10,000 Americans a year. The drugs are already being tested on kidney, bladder, and small cell lung cancers and could eventually be used against an even wider range of cancers. Antoni Ribas, an expert on cancer immunotherapies at the University of California, Los Angeles.
Evan Lipson, an assistant professor of oncology at the Johns Hopkins University medical school. About 15 years ago, researchers discovered the PD-1 pathway that is the basis of Keytruda and other new drugs.


Cancer cells have devised ways to turn green lights red, escaping the immune system’s attack. The first was Bristol-Myers Squibb’s nivolumab, which is already on the market in Japan as Opdivo, but the company hasn’t yet received the FDA’s okay to sell the drug in the United States. On their own, they can only free T-cells to fight cancer if the T-cells are already in a cancerous tumor. Complementary drugs could send more T-cells to the tumor or create more green lights along various immune pathways within the tumor. We do this by creating quality health information that is authoritative, approachable, and actionable. The program focuses on improving not only symptoms, but also personal wellness and quality of life through nutrition, exercise, relaxation and educational services. Food and Drug Administration in Decemmber 2014 granted accelerated approval to Opdivo (nivolumab), a new treatment for patients with unresectable (cannot be removed by surgery) or metastatic (advanced) melanoma who no longer respond to other drugs. Opdivo is intended for patients who have been previously treated with ipilimumab and, for melanoma patients whose tumors express a gene mutation called BRAF V600, for use after treatment with ipilimumab and a BRAF inhibitor. Opdivo is being approved more than three months ahead of the prescription drug user fee goal date of March 30, 2015, the date when the agency was scheduled to complete its review of the application. This program provides earlier patient access to promising new drugs while the company conducts additional clinical trials to confirm the drug’s benefit. Results showed that 32 percent of participants receiving Opdivo had their tumors shrink (objective response rate). The most common side effects of the drug were rash, itching, cough, upper respiratory tract infections, and fluid retention (edema).

A laser cut deck with laser etched strip planking now available only by special order was provided with each size set of frames. But to give an idea each plank was cut down from Maple planks approx 10cms x 3cms to finish at 6mm by 3mm.
The frames can be enlarged or reduced to any scale with a copier and then cut out in the size you want on a band saw. Join the Yahoo IOD Model Yacht Group noted below to get updates frequently on our progress.
Nautical charts are some of the best types of prints to plaster on the wall to give off an air of eclectic charm.
Starting a do-it-yourself project requires a high-quality set of boat building plans, patterns or drawings in a Boat plans for amateur boat builders. This article is a reprint from a Newsletter I’ve subscribed to for years called “Early To Rise”. Freestyle Composites heavy envolvement in the marine industry extends back to 1976 and their expertise in boat building and leisure craft I considered building this boat using stitch and glue but as in most cases on boats It took about 8 hours to make all of the frames for this boat using patterns.
He campaigned his Comet and Star Boats on the Chesapeake and Long Island Sound for 14 years. We have always looked for ways to innovate in our sport and, once again, we are breaking new ground for sailing – both through the development of such a global sporting pyramid, and by fleet racing these foiling boats on our stadium courses – which has never been done before. The work built on research on a separate but related pathway that resulted in the drug ipilimumab (Yervoy). Bristol-Myers Squibb doesn’t think Keytruda is different enough from Opdivo: The company has sued Merck for patent infringement. This is more likely to be true in melanoma, bladder cancer, kidney cancer, small cell lung cancer, and head and neck cancers. But because these drugs are so popular, there are clinical trials testing more advances in melanoma treatment and trying anti-PD-1 drugs on patients with other types of cancer.

The National Cancer Institute estimates that 76,100 Americans will be diagnosed with melanoma and 9,710 will die from the disease this year.
This effect lasted for more than six months in approximately one-third of the participants who experienced tumor shrinkage. The most serious side effects are severe immune-mediated side effects involving healthy organs, including the lung, colon, liver, kidneys and hormone-producing glands. The agency also is responsible for the safety and security of our nation’s food supply, cosmetics, dietary supplements, products that give off electronic radiation, and for regulating tobacco products.
You can, however, bump it up a notch with versions made out of wood, layers and layers of silky laser-cut wood. The skills unique to wooden boat building are known to a small and decreasing number Originally built by Skentlebery in Plymouth using moulds and patterns, If anyone has some experience on building a small wood boats (skiffs or jonboats), what kind of time did you have involved in the project? Milton served as a US Navy Officer aboard destroyers during the Korean War and attended Submarine Officers School before being discharged in 1954 from active duty. Together, those cancers account for at least 300,000 new patients per year in the United States, according to the National Cancer Institute. Little did I know that these wondrous layers of birch byways and coastlines were quite plentiful online, even available via Amazon. Despite the freedom that the rule permits, many boat designs stay competitive for many years. When the president visited the ship, he was accompanied by Britain's Prime Minister Ramsay MacDonald. He remained in the US Naval Reserve for 10 years doing summer cruises from ships based in Newport, RI and Brooklyn, NY. Finding out who actually manufactured them and how they went about creating them is a whole other story though. You´ll find also information about building materials, boat building methods and boat building plans.
Braine Gear steering was normal but vane steered free sailing 36”s made a comeback in 2003. In July of that year, she sailed to Chicago to be part of the Massachusetts state exhibit at the World's Fair.
