    Actually, this is a very easy project, 10 sheets of 4x8 ply, 42 2x4's 12' long, and 25 inner tubes with 1,000 feet of paracord, and about 500 screws. My retainer is only $500.00! :)

    It seems unlikely this fellow isn't going to return, based on the simple fact he's probably called or emailed a design firm, received a rough quote and they've told him what I know they have. Generally, most firms will not want to "help" with a novice designer's design and if they do, they'll treat all the work supplied by the client, as junk and redo everything. This is just a business decision, as it'll be their name on it, so they have to know precisely what's in the drawing set, so it's an all up custom and charged appropriately. Of course, they might let the client think it's "his" design, but the marquee and sign off will have their company name on it, in the event of any subsequent investigation, concerning a design flaw, insurance claim or association requirement compliance, etc.

    Seeing that I am at the forefront of the design, you should elect me chief designer.

    First off sorry it took me so long to reply I've been working on the desgin of 92 foot boat I'll post as soon as I can

    I've got a design in mind already drawn up finally. so how do I post it to the web site and the composite hull dosent dissolve because the plastic layer is heat seals the hull and the layers of carbon fiber and fiber glass through experimentations I have found to add a level of sturdiness to the Hull

    But if you guys have any other materials that I could use please let me know It just what I've used on a two 52 foot boats one of which I believe just finished

    I'm hope to have that up soon

    Seriously what is your budget, 90 foot about $900,000 before you can begin to call it a boat. I would build out if marine aluminum cover it in epoxy. Just the rent next to water is money, because 99 foot boats are hard to transport around.

    Okay, I'll bite, who designed your boat and what was their fee, if I might be so bold?
