    I'm looking for a designer to help me work up plans for a large (22'-26' range) skiff suitable for the hobbyist to build in some form of wood construction - likely epoxy strip construction.

    Here are a few of the boats that are the inspiration for this project:
    Caribiana 23
    Monomoy First Light
    Ynot Wilbur

    These are just a few of the craft that have caught my eye, but they are representative of what I'm looking for.

    I don't have a lot to offer - other than ideas and input - on the design process. However, when the design is complete, I do have a large-format CNC machine capable of milling parts from full plywood sheets. I would be willing to mill a set of frame/part patterns/building jig for the completed boat (not the material or the shipping/delivery - unless you're within a reasonable distance of Houston - just the CNC time, normally billed at $85/hour). I can also do AutoCAD, some Rhino, and SolidWorks work as necessary.

    PM me if interested in working on this project.
