We started at around 49' LOA. My client couldn't decide whether he preferred an aft or a center cockpit. They both have advantages. I told him if he gave me another 10' of boat he could have both. He liked that idea.

If you study the layout drawing you will see that we are using twin Wallas diesel stoves side by side in the galley. The cooktop of the stove is on the small side so we decided to use two. The client is an avid chef and really likes the idea of having two ovens. Keep in mind that this is a custom design and yes there are a lot of things that could be different but on this boat they will be as you see here. The design is the result of a long process of preliminary design work. Mock ups are being built at PSC to cover critical areas.
Thank you Bob for designing and to PSC for building my new boat, I cant wait to sail her...and I didn't even know you were doing all this for me!

She looks awesome, I wish I could. I love the idea of the double oevn/cook top.

Excellent work, Bob. Thanks for sharing. Any other specs (in addition to LOA) that you can give us? How about displacement, draft, and beam?

Congratulations Paul! That's a beautiful boat with some great reputations to keep her afloat (Perry and PSC). If you don't mind me asking, what are your general cruising plans for her when she's launched? Please look me up if you ever wander to the sweet waters of the Great Lakes...I'd love an in-person look.

Paul- Great looking boat, I love the pilothouse (actually I love the whole thing) and dual cockpits. You mentioned that a ketch with a large mizzen was a major priority for you, would you mind elaborating on that a bit?
Bob- beautiful, just beautiful.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

Bob and Paul,

I'm thrilled to have a chance to watch this project progress here in Washington. The plans are exciting and I know the final result will be stunning. We work closely with Steve and his crew at PSC and think the world of them. I'd love to have a chance to meet you guys next time you're in town!

Jules
