From the age of 10 through 16 I spent a large portion of my time designing sailing yachts. I’ve been racing dingies (Optimist Pram & Laser) since I was 8 and since then, I’ve dreamed of living on a boat. With my penchant for design, sailboat design became my muse. I began with basic sketches and then later learned drafting. I even went so far as to do hydrostatic stability analysis, calculating centers of mass and centers of buoyancy. This 42’ yacht was the pinnacle of my designs.
