    Default Lugger? Whatever, I like it.

    I actually came across this lovely video while looking on YT for something else. Pretty!

    This has bumped around a bit, and it's still nice to watch everytime. A scaled-up shellback with a Ness Yawl rig... Interesting and looks fun.

    I've written to him to ask if lines/plans are available, but I'd be surprised if they are, seeing as there might be issues with Joel White's estate.

    Yep! I followed the links from the video and found the article you had, in English, about the design and building of the boat. Worth a look!

    From the thread...

    http://forum.woodenboat.com/showthre...ing-amp-Rowing



    They took the basic idea and lines to a Klaas Bes NA who re jigged it for them at the extra length, which with the different rig makes it a different boat to Joel White's, but I think he'd be pretty chuffed with it. He loved a good boat! He adapted many Herreshoffs himself with a careful and respectfull hand.

    I think Klaas (re) drew it for stitch and glue, though they lapped it in the end. Being hyper critical, the only thing you might want to consider is getting the frames out of it if you want to lie in the bottom of the boat, or look at the ergonomics of some floorboards.

    For plans mail to Klaas Bes: mail@besyachtdesign.nl

    Thanks for the reference to the earlier thread! I've written to Frank van Zoest, he says he'll forward my request on to the designer, Klaas Bes.

    Gentle forumites, I am not yet familiar with the WB forum procedures but do my best. 1 plans of my lugger 'Lucia", still rather basic, are available, mail Klaas Bes. 2 I am adding a new article on my blog with highlights and mishaps in the Morbihan , Brittanny this spring. And when you go to my website and hit the button 'Media" you will find a bit more film and pictures of small boats. Best via video 'Two luggers at play'. Enjoy, Frank van Zoest

    Folks should go look at Franks photos on his blog if for no other reason than to check out the aluminum tirrik!

    Just a note: It's been almost two weeks since I messaged the designer, twice, and no response.

    I might just scale up my own lines.

    Alan, can you wait till octobre? Then the plans will be ready. There are 3 persons involved and we all are on holiday at different times. Plans will be basic first (and cheap) and we expect to fill in details during that stage, working with the first builders. Frank

    Sure, there's no rush. I would be starting, probably, in November.

    Looks a heck of a lot like the Calendar Islands Yawl...

    It does, Clint...just a foot and a half longer, more or less....but the same basic idea.

    I thought so too when I saw the Calendar Yawl in Small Boat Monthly the first time. But now I think my boat is more of a rowing boat that goes sailing and the CIY is a daysailer that can also be rowed. And my boat is a bit simpler. Frank
