Ply boats

Did everyone of you cruise in epoxy-plywood boats in the Mediteranean area? I'm considering in this alternative of cruising sailboat. The French are renowned for very good boats like Randonneur, Serpentaire, Cabernet, and designers like Veys, Lombard, Harle.

Fitness4mind-

I would highly recommend you read the post in my signature, since you seem to be a bit confused about how to post... your thread topic is the same as that of another thread you started but has nothing to do with what you're actually posting about. Welcome to sailnet.

I have sailed/cruised/used several epoxy/plywood cold laminate boats, mostly multihulls along the eastern Atlantic coast of the USA. A well-designed, properly-built cold-molded epoxy/plywood laminate boat is a thing of beauty. A poorly designed or badly built one is hideous. Not familiar with any of the brands of boats or designers you're asking about though.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Thank you for your answer, Sailingdog. I must apologise for this post, i mentioned the reason for editing it (accidentaly posting twice). I tried to delete it, but it was impossible, so i asked another question . The boats i mentioned are build in stitch & glue technique, which is common in amateur boatbuilding. The French boatyards Sysba Marine and RM Fora are building the Randonneur boats professionally in stitch & glue ply-epoxy. These boats are high-performance twin keel ocean cruisers. They have a multichine hull and very ergonomic and modern accomodations. Some boats were built by amateurs, with very good results. I am an amateur boatbuilder too, but i like designs with more traditional appearance. I have friends which are interested in home-built performance cruising sailboats and we want to know the pros and cons of these boats in offshore cruising before considering building one. Once more please excuse me for the mistake in posting this.
