You are looking for the Fram. The strongest wood boat ever built and a veteran artic explorer. Designed and built by Colin Archer for Fridtjof Nansen's 1893 Arctic expedition. She was also used by Otto Sverdrup, Oscar Wisting, and Roald Amundsen between 1893 and 1912. She is currently laying in Oslo.
All the best,
Study the history of naval architecture and move forward knowing what didnít work before.
Donít waste time making the same old mistakes but instead make new ones and to insure your place in history be sure the mistakes are big ones.
Never design a mast that is weaker then the boat
Never design a boat that is weaker then the mast
Never listen to someone describe why your project will not work unless they can show you the broken pieces of their own version.
