Thank you Rich! If he owns the rights to the design.....great! Dean

Moore 24 and others,......

When liscensed,these two models will go through our highly efficient "lean" manufacturing process from plans to the water.

Many sub-assembly's are "off the shelf" ready to install.

This all making the break even point well within reach.

One great contractor is Raven manufacturing......

They produce pre-made winch systems

Great people making great products

Mast section size

So the question why this size?

The size is to fill a gap between what is available now.

For models this is a big difference to both appearance and performance.

Scale effect........

This section is near perfect for models:

Dubois 50
Farr 42

Perfect to scale for:
San Juan 24(48")
Ensign (54")
