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 http://duckworksmag
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
tstuff.com/ Boat%20Designs/ Life%20Dory% 2010,%2012, %2014/wave_ dancer_12. htm
Any suggestions for something similarly simple to learn infusion on?
