    Just thought I'd introduce myself. I'm from Sweden and I have no knowledge whatsoever about designing boats :confused: I have been around boats and sailed most of my life though and I do all the work on them myself. I also spent the last ten years working with marine electronics on everything from daycruisers to submarines.

    I currently own an Amigo 27, 25 ft LOA sailboat that is on sale, and a Transworld 41 ketch that stems from a William Garden design.

    We're in the process of selling most of what we own and set off for 1.5-2 years of sailing. I'll have more spare time on my hands and I've always wanted to learn about boat design and maybe some day design one. Actually, I'd like to start with designing and building a nesting dinghy :D

    So, Hi!
