So, a quick note about boat plans…

Here’s something important to keep in mind…

Boat plans are not a sacred text and you can change them as much as you like as long as you realize that if your changes/modifications/cunning plans result in a clusterfuck of a boat it’s all your fault.

With me so far?

Here’s something else you need to know about what a designers job is all about…

A designer of boats job description does not include teaching you how to build a boat, babysit you through the process, and do your thinking for you.

In the next few posts I’ll be talking about building and possibly changing a particular plan which just may fall into what some people consider heretical territory. Folks with a delicate and orthodox nature just may want to skip the next couple of weeks or so…

More soonish…

  1. Something else to keep in mind:

    Don't change things you don't understand.

    Or more specifically:

    Don't change things where you don't understand the constraints the original designer had to work with.
