Now that I've figured out that I can import designs done the way I'm used to into Freeship, I'm getting kind of addicted to it. It took just 30 seconds to click the chines for Barbara's dory into non-crease curves and produce a set of lines for a nice little round bottom dinghy. I think she would be the cat's pajamas built sort of like the Yawldory with a glassed strip plank bottom like a stripper canoe and lapstrake topsides.



The bottom would take a lot of abuse and she would still have the lapstrake look. The subtle bottom flat will let her sit nicely on a beach but without corners that would be more vulnerable to rock damage.
