Bob Wise has a very nice blog called Boat Bits. An interesting fellow, Bob is a boatbuilder, filmmaker and runs a charter business currently out of St. Maarten. He's built a couple of versions of Phil Bolger's advanced sharpie, named Loose Moose (LM1 at the top and LM2 below). Click the charter link to get more of his history. A self described Lug nut, Bob has a passion for the rig. He is currently looking for a design to self build, in the 40' to 50' range. Wants lots of accommodation, shoal draft, and possibly lug rig, though I think the first two criterion are most important. I don't think he wants to go multihull. Oh yeah, it should also look great and he likes to build in ply. Any suggestions?
