I wish more people would realize the potential for such inexpensive alternatives to the large/expensive deep draft yachts  that everybody thinks they need.

Congratulations on such a well thought out design. It is very similar to the type of boat I may one day build.

Garry, Australia

Thank you for posting the plans online. It is rare that someone would put such a large amount of work into a project, and then share it with the world free-of-charge. Usually people immediately begin to think of the possibility of profit. It's good that you share. Perhaps more will.

Scott, California, USA

It looks like an interesting project. I would be very interested to follow your progress.
