Designs and Sketches

The design of mine that has come the farthest is, obviously, the one for the skin-on-frame outrigger canoe AL DEMANY CHIMAN, which is covered separately. The next most developed is the 35′ racer-cruiser sloop, LiLo.

I designed “LiLo” as my project for the Elements of Boat Design class at the WoodenBoat School. I did my best to reproduce the drawings in a legible manner (and barely succeeded). It was a fantastic experience and I am pleased with the results. I think she’d look stunning in any anchorage. I recommend forest green topsides and faux-tanbark sails.

My other designs are not well developed, by serve to indicate what kinds of ideas I am kicking around.
