Yes. When I mentioned Seraffyn I was referring to Lin&Larry Pardey's first Hess designed hull. I read all their books written while cruising on this boat and became aware of most of these small vessel capabilities.
I am also aware that she will not be easy to build with limited knowledge and tooling. I have however local support of professional buiders
Thank you for your words, guidance and suggestions on the most applicable boat designs. I am still assessing a number of conditions and plans. No decision has yet been made.http://www.sailnet.com/forums/images...s/confused.gif
All the best and happy sailing
