I recently read an extremely interesting article (was it in GOOD OLD BOAT?) by Reuel Parker about his plywood tender GANDY DANCER. While the 12 footer sounded like a wonderful boat, I kept getting the feeling while reading that this design had the potential to be enlarged to long range cruising size. And then at the end of the article he said that he was planning to design something in the 50' range along the same lines.
I've been dreaming about a large but EASY TO BUILD plywood livaboard cruiser.
Does anyone know more?
