MORE INFO ON THIS DESIGN:
I can think of only a handful of pastimes that give as much pleasure as taking this boat out in the evening as both the sun and the winds of the day are fading. The joy is in the simplicity. I tip my hat to Iain!
So far the plans look great and I have already finished the laminated stems fwd and aft. I will begin the mold cut outs this weekend and begin setting them up next week. This looks like a very sleek and well designed boat and I can’t wait to see the final outcome. Looking to finish this build by next spring. So far so good👍🏻👍🏻🤗🤗
As always with any Oughtred plans, very complete, easily readable / identifiable. Looking forward to starting the build. Of course Wooden Boat had them to my door in less than a week.
