After revisiting shortypen.com, I had forgotten how much I really like this site. It may have been updated since I last looked at it, which was more than a year ago, but in any case, the style is the same, (not super flashy) which I really like. And some really great stuff there.
Unfortunately I have never been able to help him identify any of his mystery boats.
I was in contact with him a while back and he seems like a really nice guy. He even sent me a few of his short pens that he was making for a while which I still have. He told me that they never really caught on which is too bad, because I think it is a great idea.http://www.shortypen.com/shorty/
