    Default What is the name of the designer with two "a" in his name?

    I apologize for this. I must be getting old. And I don't spend enough time dreaming about what I'd rather be doing. He has a ketch of about 31 feet that I like. Thanks.

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    Smaalders has an eye. I have some of his study plans laying around.

    Aage Nielsen drew some beautiful boats. Quite sad really that his designs are no longer available.

    If you would have a good boat, be a good guy when you build her - honest, careful, patient, strong.

    Actually I think they are now. If you have Rockport Marine build the boat for you. Tom Jackson would have more info about that.

    We know Lucy’s owner, we were in a navigation class with her. Lucy certainly is pretty.

    Nielson's draftsmanship is second to none. His work is beautiful. And the boats drawn are beautiful too. I own a few drawings he's responsible for (not his designs, though) and it's stunning to look at.
    If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
