    BTW, out of size range on this thread, but since in post #12 an ORMA 60 was brought up, Nigel Irens has a 63' cruiser version . . .

    Beautiful but too big and high cost.
    I like the tender garage.

    Too bad the Simpson Liona plans aren't available.
    Not sure I like the center cockpit on boats in the low 40 foot range- I am alone on this or does it seem to be a better use of space and transom
    access for dinghies, fishing, boarding etc with an aft cockpit (and possibly a pilothouse)?

    The Liahona from Peabody MA came with a full set of plans I think, so you could track down the leads from that thread to get a copy, and ask Roger Simpson or entitled parties for permission, and what the fee is for a license to build one.

    Also the builder of the Liahona that's now for sale in Yarmouth ME could still have a set of plans, or that set of plans might have been brought back to the boat, that can be asked to the seller.

    The Liahona set up makes excellent use of space I think, as it leaves room for an aft cabin and a wider center cockpit with still interior space below it.

    Maybe you could build a pilothouse instead of the cockpit, and build the aft cabin as low as possible and use the roof as a poop deck for outside space and fishing.

    I've posted an Colvin Saugeen Witch with a pilothouse instead of the cockpit on the thread Thomas Colvin's designspost #25.

    The Liahona now for sale in Yarmouth ME looks like excellent built, the 2015 Liahona thread starts with two interior pics of that boat, here's an older ad with older pics in better shape and a higher price, and she's built of top materials including the world top class dutch Bruynzeel full mahogany marine plywood, I'm sure she could be rebuild like new and modificated for a fraction of the effort and price needed to build a new one, and she's not too far from Ontario, at a top yard where you also can work yourself . . :)
