    Hello. I want to build an Uffa Fox design hull, National 18 (Ace) or Jolly boat. Plans are available but I have many questions.
    #1. I want to rig it as a lug yawl so how do I figure out the balance points - sail and centerboard
    #2. I'm not going to do clinker construction with 7,000 cooper rivets so I think my construction options are glued lapstrake or strip plank/cold mold. Since the plans are from the 30's I don't know what thickness/material I should go with.
    Thanks!

    The picture reminded me of the only large glued clinker (Lapstrake) boat project I have observed, the Ian Oughtred St Ayles skiff.
    It uses 9mm planks.
    The balance calcs are a fairly easy project for any experienced boat designer. Heck, Ian might even do them for you.

    This link on the build process might be worth looking at, as it probably has a lot of similarities to your stated design preference.

    Edit: PS, this might be an inspiration to you
