About the boat:
This hull is built with plywood lapstrake construction. The wide planks
overlap each other and, done correctly, can really accentuate the beauty
of the hull lines. But Dudley did not trust his computer program to get
the interplay of hull shape and lapstrakes correct, so he dusted off
his drawing board, hunted for a pencil and drew the hull lines by hand.
