I intend to build the B&B Yacht Design "Marissa" and was going through the magazine pile during my morning "Reflection" and grabbed the "Planking and Fastening" manual.
Then it hit me, man!
Wouldn't this little skiff be pretty done up in plywood lapstrake?
Mind you I have never built a lapstrake boat but have a couple of larger (30' +) plywood & epoxy hulls under my belt when I worked for a guy who dredged for clams.
They mentioned in the planking & fastening manual a computer program that would generate the lapstrake cutting schedule for almost any hull?
Can anyone who has explicit knowledge of this please comment? Is this a "Off the wall" idea or a perhaps more labor intensive method of building the skiff that would result in a very eye pleasing design that looks more "Traditional" but has all of the benefits of modern materials and economy?
Thanks in advance!
