    ... in the 45' range, give or take. Any build material is fair game. Slow is fine and fast is undesired. Any designs spring to mind? Let me know! Thanks!

    Thanks, @bajansailor ! I was only aware of a couple of those, so that's helpful. The goal is to find a design that is (a) minimalist in all respects and (b) is designed for, or easily modified for, life in equatorial weather. So much of the boat design canon was designed for northern or mixed climate usage and with expansive feature sets.

    I want to agree with you re northern influences in boat,designs.
    I am in the tropics, where shade and ventilation are top priorities, and things like galley down and sleeping spaces below decks are simply horrifying!
