New Commissions

The Future

In the final years of his old company he invested in the design of four of the finest small sailboats that the common man could ever aspire to owning.  His new company LLC will be selling the plans and building rights for these four superb designs. Chuck believes that the field of sailing has gone full circle. In the not-too-distant future the working class will once again be able not only to rise above mere survival but to set aside an excess which can be devoted, in a few rare cases, to building a small sailboat in which to see the world.

There is nothing that perfects a design more than, first of all, starting with near perfection. But once a design is built, you can always improve it- such is the essence of human progress. There are prototypes afloat for each of these designs. Chuck has used his mastery to tweak his final designs into the most beautiful, swift, stable and well balanced examples of nautical architecture ever devised. The good news is that you can have one, and the plans from which you will build are affordable, well detailed, and computer faired to the fourth decimal place. Full sized loftings or IGES files for multiaxis milling are available to reduce building time.
