Question of the Month with Ted Brewer
 
I recently started a new series on my blog titled "Question of the Month with Designer Ted Brewer". As the name implies, Ted has agreed to answer a design/sailboat related question or two on just about a monthly basis. This month I asked him to tell me about a few of his favorite personal designs. You can read all about his third favorite all-time design is Mystic, here. We'll be following up sometime next week with his second all-time favorite design.

Bob was gracious enough to contribute on my website as well: Double Enders According to Perry

Both Bob and Ted are great guys with a wealth of information to share. It's been a lot of fun for me to get to work just a little bit with some of my "sailboat heroes".

Great blogs, both of you!

Nice score, Kwalt!

I've now posted Ted's second response about his second all-time favorite personal design. This time he writes about Black Velvet II, a 43 footer that later lead to the Whitby 42 and Cape North 43 and eventually several other center cockpit cruisers. Here's the story: Question of the Month with Designer Ted Brewer (#2): Black Velvet II

Very nice kwalt! It's interesting to hear Ted talk about how the designs evolved from his original drawings. I can see a lot of similarities in our Three Seas 40 hull to the Cape North 43.

Just posted the 3rd response from Ted in this series about his favorite personal designs. This time Ted shares the very interesting story of the Goderich/Huromic 35, including details about radius bilge designs for metal boats and the epic circumnavigations that have taken place on the Goderich 35. Here's the post: Question of the Month with Designer Ted Brewer (#3: Goderich/Huromic 35)

The Brewer Troubador 42 looks like a great boat too...very high sea comfort rating with decent turn of speed.

Would be great to hear from even more of these well-known designers...Wish I knew someone who knew Charlie Morgan well enough to get him to do something like this...a question of the month...etc.

Your contributions are always welcome, Bob! Your article about canoe-stern designs remains one of the most popular posts on my website. Feel free to PM or email me if you've got a topic or two you'd like to write about.
