A lot of design philosophy goes into boat building. And just because you think you have it all figured out before you start, you don’t.

Back when I was doing most of my building I took lots of pictures but no video. One by one I am now collecting those images, committing them to video ala Ken Burns style, and getting them back out to those who find these kinds of things interesting.

I believe in short videos, so I’ve embedded it on a web page with more information, and a link to another web page, with WAY more information.

Enjoy,

Thanks! Yes I am. Sadly though, I’ve let my magazine subscription lapse because I barely have time for it. I’m hoping to get back to boats someday soon tho!

Interesting read and watch. I am planning a skin on frame dinghy for my boat this year, although along somewhat more conventional lines.
Well done on the research and build. A happy customer is always the best compliment.

I guess being Paul M may predispose one to becoming a boat builder. :-)
