    Hi John, Don't know how but I have only just spotted this thread. I was just wondering as I have your canoe diy book, how much cross over is there? I am at work now so cannot check but some of the project sound similar.

    Is this still a problem? if somebody wants an electronic version is it better just to get it by e-mail or does Vista cause problems with that too?

    The electronic version is a .pdf file and should work quite happily with Vista. Users of older operating systems who have earlier versions of Acrobat Reader installed may encounter some problems with the file, however these would be fixed by downloading a more up to date .pdf reader.
