    Someone says something about your designs? No one is drawing? We're all top-secret mode?

    My entry was a harry proa, buildable in either foam/glass or ply.
    LOA:35’
    BOA: 20’
    Sail Area: 514 sq’
    Empty Weight: 794 lbs
    Water draft: 4”-5’9”
    Air Draft 39’8”
    Bruce # (empty): 2.5

    20 minutes trailer to sailing, very easy build method (360 hours for pros, up to double that for amateurs). Materials cost: $16,000

    I know how you feel!. Unfortunately, the drawings, explanation and spread sheet are all too large for this forum. Let me know an email address and I will forward them to you directly. And then I will destroy your email address. ;-)
