There was a fair amount of discussion about Yonder a few years back
and Bruce Hallman did a paper model and posted photos of the hull
Rollin dalPiaz commissioned the design and Mark Hall from Stockton
CA purchased plans ($1000). Nothing has been mentioned about any
building starting since then.
It is an interesting design. Box keel construction that becomes the
building jig for the framework and then strip planked, and plywood
decking from the portlights up I think.
I would also suggest the Alaskan Motorsailer as well, as it would be
much less complicated to build. Yonder of course is world girding
capable and AMS is more of a low effort coastal cruiser. Doesn't
have the sail area nor the deep centerboard. I think I prefer the
idea of the small diesel inboard to two outboards though. Just
having read about the advantages in the Sitka Explorer article.
You could maybe locate the email addresses of the two Yonder
builders in the members list? Or messages search with "Yonder".
