Lyle Hess Plans: Change of Address

The plans for boats designed by the late Lyle C. Hess including those for the Falmouth 30 (the ones we used for Taleisin) can now be obtained by writing to Linda de Coux (Lyle’s daughter) at:
P.O. box 2849
Fullerton, California 92837

You can also leave a message at 1-714-680-0400 and Linda will either call or email within a few days.

For a list of plans and their cost, take a look at our cruising tips for 2007. Lyle Hess Plans are listed there.

Source for Bu-Ord parachutes for para-anchor usage

The parachute we use on board Taleisin to assist us in storm conditions is actually a surplus one made for the military. We bought ours from a chandlery called Fiorentino’s who supplied them for fishboats in the San Pedro area. For many years it has been difficult to find similar BUORD parachutes. Now we have learned the same company has purchased another 400 of the 8 footers like we use, plus several 12 footers.
You can contact them at: 1-800-777-0732 or 1-949-631-2336 (www.para-anchor.com).

We can confidently recommend these Bu-Ord parachutes as para-anchors. They are built super-strong to military specs. (See page 54 of Storm Tactics Handbook, 3rd edition for more on this Bu-Ord parachute)
