Design 123

DXF files for this design are pretty much done now. They should be available on the site in a few days.

These include new plywood frames which are made up in layers, sandwich-fashion. Builders can choose whether to make conventional laminated frames or the new plywood frames.

Using plywood for the frames makes slightly different sizes – 25mm sided frames end up as 27mm (3 off 9mm ply) and 35mm sided frames end up as 36mm (4 off 9mm ply). These differences will be reflected in the DXF files for the ply components of the interior furniture. But almost certainly builders will need to make a few very minor adjustments to some of the solid timber furniture components.

In the course of preparing the DXF files, I discovered an error in the cockpit coaming drawing 123/003/06 – some of the widths at Position -5430 are incorrect. I have corrected them and we will be issuing a new drawing shortly.

We have been in England for the last four months, building a timber-framed extension on my son's 18th Century cottage in Woodbridge – somewhat of a sabbatical! Now we are back and in the full swing of yacht design.
