I know that boatdesign might be a better forum for this question, but I am not on it.
I know there are a lot of smart people here.
As I was looking at a 17' stitch and glue dory kit from Chesapeake Light Craft, I had the crazy idea of building an 85 foot model. Obviously I could just blow up the plans by a factor of 5--or maybe I couldn't?
If its so much bigger, maybe it makes more sense to build it as planks on frames?
It would be a simple and cheap
sailboat for day sailing
While I am at it, why not 170 feet?
