That's right. I'd forgotten about Fuzzy's VDS.

It is an old design, like almost all on that catalog.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Hold on just a cotton pickin' minute,,,,,,,,,
You mean to tell me that Van de Stadt actually produced drawings?
Well, I'll be.
Are you trying to tell me that they assumed you would need detailed drawings to produce one of their "designs"?

Well I'll be a coon's cousin (I made that one up, but it sounds right).

Dag nabbit. Who'd a thought you would need actual drawings to build a boat. Fer crimeny (sp) sakes.

Boy, I'd sure like to see more of them drawings.

I think, but what would I know, that someone calling themselves a designer could produce and show something kind of like this. If not they should bugger off and quit pretending they are a designer.

Sorry Paulo.
I am speaking in "authentic frontier gibberish".
Did you see the movie BLAZING SADDLES?
Maybe it did not translate well.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Remember, anyone can claim to be a "designer". But only designers can prove it with BOTH anecdotal evidence AND documentation.

The others are just hacks.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Yeah, that's all I am asking.

If you want to write "yacht designer" after your name then show your designs. Shitski, is that complicated?
I don't write "bassoon player" after my name.
I don't write "NFL wide receiver" after my name.

Put up or shut the phuque up.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

I never knew it was the drawings rather than the yachts that makes one a yacht designer. When I was a kid I was always drawing boats in class... I guess that makes me a yacht designer?

Not unless you've also got your boats out there doing it. Again, it takes BOTH.

You can be a sketcher. You can be a builder. You can be a sketcher AND a builder - with a few boats out there doing it. And all that's fine and good.

But being a true yacht designer is just a higher standard. It's that simple.

Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Up here in AK almost everyone in my old neighborhood planned, built and finished their homes. Contractor's and architects were not exactly common. BUT NONE OF THEM claimed to be home designers or architects. Some of them built MANY cabins, homes, businesses etc and still made no such claim. They would have accepted the title of carpenter or builder without argument.

I can tear down and rebuild an engine, but I am not a mechanic.
I can run a raft, tie flies, and fly fish quite well, but I am not a fishing guide
etc and so on.

Does Brett "design" boats. Yes, to an extent. Is he obviously a man with a great deal of welding and building experience? Absolutely! That is not the same as being a recognized designer. I am in the computer hardware and software engineering field myself and have been for a rather long time. I understand Bob's frustration in this conversation.
