    Hey guys.

    I`ve always been a fan of boats and boat design although I never could get the physics to match. I think it was my father who traveled around the world on a sailboat that influenced me and my love for the sea.

    So When my father died a few months ago I inheritet alot of money and decided to actually design and have a boat buildt. The reason for my tread is that my math and physics skills are way off which is kinda essential. I have some ideas but i need someone who can fill in the blank spots.

    So, i was curious if some of you guys could point me in the right directions towards a designer near Norway that could help me. I was thinking of a big daycruiser in mahogni. connecting the classic with modern style


    Bueno, Norway

    I can help with calculations and advice.
    You have probably some ideas of what you want to build.
    We can make some sketches together and look at the numbers.
    However, if you find a stock design from a known designer, you will gett a tried and tested boat for very little money.
