Great Designer – Paul Gartside

I mentioned Paul Gartside in the previous post. He is, by the way, a heck of a good designer. He has a great eye for traditional craft with just the right amount of working boat influence, in my mind.

Check out this one – 5.5 Metre Half-Decked Centerboard Gaff Cutter, Design #93 – sweet thing. I love the high-peaked gaff with the topsail and double-head – just looks really sharp.

Here’s another beauty: 27 Ft Cruising Canoe Design #102.

And finally, this one, in the same vein: 24 Ft Gaff Cutter, Design #98

Really lovely stuff. I strongly recommend looking at his entire portfolio.
