Hope you are enjoying your new home.  I will be posting tem into files (or the web page) when the layout is complete.   Meanwhile I have emailed them to you.

The biggest selection of dinghies is at   I would offer to draw something, but don't have time.

Starting small is an excellent idea.  Do the seats for the dory first, for this very reason.  Please keep us in touch with progress.

I am very interested in your Seabatticle renderings, but to save you
replying to a lot of emails, perhaps it would be easier to upload them
the files section.

BTW I have finally moved to Thailand and this year will have the time
and space to begin building - starting with a minimal rowboat to prove
to the boss that I can do it at all, followed by a schooner
elementarry, followed by a schooner visionarry. I am hoping that
spending extra time making mistakes on a small scale will reduce the
overall time by reducing mistakes on a large scale.

I had been intending to build a wave dancer dory to start, but John
Holtrop hasn't been responding to my emails,%2012,%2014/wave_dancer_12.htm
Any suggestions for something similarly simple to learn infusion on?

Best regards
