Here is the half-hull model for our twin schooners, masterfully designed and carved by Dave Westergard.
From the outset we decided to design and model these vessels the traditional way by using a half-hull instead of blue prints. In this way you can really see the shape of things to come.
In this model we were seeking several particular features. As these schooners are intended to be capable of deep-sea ocean voyaging, as well as summer time coastal cruising and racing, we are demanding seaworthiness and speed, stiffness so she sails more standing up than on her ear, pretty sheer, bow and stern, and a goodly amount of room below.
In many respects this a classic Tancook Schooner but with additional beam and other nuances incorporated. We think the model is gorgeous. And of course we are building them to be very strong.
