    Long keel, aided by the hollow gar board. ^

    ... Nick is fond of bovine ballast too.

    Just so, see post #25 for the depth of the long keel. Like I said, not overcomplicated.Not sure about the bovine bit.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Good deep forefoot helps a lot too, although Peerie Maa's is slightly spooned.

    I'm planning on around 7 tonnes of livestock as ballast on my boat, there's enough space between the floors for a local species of sheep to fit two per floor, if I stuff them in hard.

    Been away for a couple days. Thanks for the links, guys. Lost many favorites from this forum, particularly those discussing sail and oar designs.
