    His book "Plans and dreams" is worth getting

    I agree. We have one of the sailboats he designed and built. When I mentioned that we'd like a larger rig he sent plains for one right back (which he'd designed for another owner).

    And he is honest to :-) When I asked turning Bashers new version Ditch Witch, to a yawl, he just could not understand how it would make life easyer :-)

    Oh, that's nice. She even has the proper number of pointy ends. And 16' with an inboard? That's the sort of internal ballast I like. Ok, now I'm off to spend the morning day dreaming....

    Francois Vivier has a design based on the same lineage: Gabian.
    Remarkably similar in profile, but a clinker ply trailer sailer. 80% of the beam, 65% of the displacement, 160kg water ballast and of course fully CNC ready, whereas Gartside's is old school pen and paper.

    Should make for a great comparison.

    For those of us that also follow the facebookgroup "wooden boat forum" we have a member sharing a lot of videos of a boat with a similar rig. What is the origin of these boats?

    Gozo is a term for small boat all round the Adriatic, Italian coast and Malta. The lateen rig does back two milennia at least
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Mediterranean Feluccas...inshore double ended fishing boats eastern med especially Greece. Some were built in San Francisco when migrants left for the USA. The 'Gozzo's/ Gozzi are Italian ones.

    Will look like this, just a bit smaller (it will fit in a garage a bit easier!)



    Sub zero on the WBF 'cool wall'.

    The Gartside one is shown cold molded or carvel.

    A guy here knows the names of the different ones in different regions...

    I can't believe our own WoodenBoat missed out on this opportunity. They have nothing approaching the quality of these designs in the magazine. It is a serious deficiency. Gartside is the best living designer of wooden boats in my opinion, and this is exactly the type of content I want in a magazine. Perhaps I should divert my subscription to Watercraft.

    I did not renew my subscription this year, but for what you get for little money, is well worth it, certainly with the Gartside plan content itself. I still have the plans for the Spitfire pram dinghy hanging in the workshop.....im waiting for a long winter when i know i will have time......

    I'm subscribed to both, and I find they do compliment each other quite well. The SketchBook obviously has a different level of completness and a different, more contemporary design sense, but it's nothing to sneeze at. And Paul Gartside and Pete Greenfield go back ways, if I recall correctly, so it's not something you can lay at WBs feet.
