Which IOM to build?
What should I build next? Im after an IOM that is an allrounder, not chined, and fairly easily planked as I want to use cedar and finish it bright.
Must look hot, and be competative, especially in wind in the 15 knot range. Nothing optimised as a corner design ie only performs in certain conditions or points of sail. Must be an alrounder performer that can handle Sydney harbour chop.
Free plans are great but have no problem paying for the right design, especially if it is more detailed.
Thank for any feedback,

Brad Gibson design SKA. I love mine and would build another in a heartbeat. Best IOM I have built (and I have owned a Triple Crown, a TS2 copy, a Widget,an EMO, and SKA).
We have built close to a dozen of them in our area. They are a great all round boat and really come alive when the wind gets up.
It is the immediate predecessor to the Britpop and shares much of the same look, but without chines. It is easy to plank and build as there are no reverse curves. It has lots of fullness in the bow to resist nosediving and gets on a plane quickly.
