    For those who enjoy the manual design process utilizing duck weights, splines, etc..:

    Retired P.E. Naval Architect (small craft) has available:
    1. Edson, K&E, and generic duck weights (total 14);
    2. French splines, no grooves, used flat, multiple tapers;
    3. Complete boxed K&E ships curves.
    Would consider gifting all, in exchange for shipping costs.

    Hey @Glidemaster!

    As a naval architecture student I would like to take care for your design equipement! If it is still available I would like to hear from you via PM.

    If your design equipment, splines, battens, etc are still available, I could use them well for a new design of a traditional boat I am doing. Computers are nice for computations but I still prefer the beauty and smoothness of battens and weights.
