They are simpler, purpose-built cruising boats, but quite elegant when done well. I bought Brent's book some years ago with the intention of building his 31 footer in aluminium. These are very interesting and solid boats with a lot of extremely practical solutions. For the home builder, I can't think of a better design.
I have said many times on here, and will say it again: I like what Brent does, I just do not like how he does it. And many of the things he says are so far off of reality that I find myself mystified they are the same person.
