Re: Designers Working Specifically in Strip Plank
If the proprietors of this fine place don't mind too much, I'll toot my own horn just a wee bit. I have done the engineering and design work to convert several large classic yachts to strip-cold-mould construction (Herreshoff, Crowninshield, Strange) and several traditional working craft (Cape Island lobsterboat, Northumberland Strait lobsterboat, Tancook sloop), and my own designs in the construction method. It is not polite for me to go on too much about my own work here on the forum, but I'd be pleased to share what little knowledge I have on the subject, with two conditions: I'm not here very much due to work demands so I'll only be able to visit once a week or so, and any questions about my own designs will have to be sent to me by private post or to my e-mail addy in my profile. If that's OK with with our hosts, I'll look forward to answering any questions you may have as best as I can.
Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.
