On Long Planned Vacation Cruise

   Remember your plans for a post-war vacation?
Some of our plans didn't materialize, but one man's
did.
   L. P. Burch left last week on his long planned trip
to Hoods Canal. He expects to be gone a month.
During that month he will cruise wherever he pleases,
his charts include the San Juan islands, too. A 16-
foot Burchcraft inboard boat has been fitted out with
a special folding canvass top. In the boat all stowed
away and leaving a surprising amount of room are
all the things he needs. There are two metal grub
lockers, a stove, dishes, a tent, sleeping bag and
mattress, cushions, oars, extra fuel, water, two an­
chors, a telescope, a compass and his charts. There is
sleeping room under the canvass top which even has
a small electric light.
    Mr. Burch expects to catch and cook lots of fish.
Big ones, he says. All the equipment is there any­
way. Well, good fishing to you. Pappy!
