Id like to introduce everyone:
Just thought Id throw some photos and invite people to look at the blog (where many more pictures and the entire build process resides) who might be interested in a Jacques Mertens LB22, which you can find plans at www.bateau.com .
She is a boat inspired by Atkin's NINIGRET (that unmistakable sheerline and warped plane hull), Bolger's HALLOWEEN, and some other influences here and there. I intended on getting the boat completed last June, and guess what, it took almost twice as long. I omitted the windshield because our usage dictates using the decks as armrests while cruising, and the cabin removed because it is sunny here 300 days a year (though many of them are very c-c-c-old).
I can't reccomend Bateau enough. The support there has been amazing as the designer participates in the forum and helps all the builders along the way.
