I hope you are all well. You guys simply rock out. Hundreds of threads and dozens of books
later: a very long story and an endless obsession cut short: I'm working my arse off and saving money
for a aluminium monohull
boat. Will be buying
stock/custom plans either from Holland
(van de stadt, djikstra) or from Australia
(radford) within the next year. Aluminium, 45-57ft cutter
rig, simplicity and ease of maintenance
- design will be following the upside-down approach - if the boat is upside down, then...
Plan is: build the best possible hull
+ superstructure and fit it out with bare necessities inside. Then sail and see what is not needed.
QUESTION: what boatyard in your opinion is the best in regards to specialist aluminium hull
construction. Particularly interested to build either in NZ or AUS. If not then Holland
. Thank you for your input and have a good day.
