Search the Bolger Yahoo Group, there was a lot of discussion when
the MAIB articles came out a year ago. Both the AS29 and the
Yonder are equivalent 'rental crane' and 'contract trucker' operations
to get to water in my opinion.
At first impression, the curvy hull of Yonder seems much more
work than a sheet plywood AS29, but Yonder is strip planked
on plywood bulkhead frames, without a high drama hull flip or
trying to handle floppy 30 foot pieces of plywood. I imagine that
edge nailed strips, with an air stapler, would go pretty quick.
The inside fit out of the two would be about equal, and that is the
bulk of the work anyway.

Great point Jeff and one worth seriously exploring by anyone
contemplating a steel boat.My boat yard neighbour,who is building a
Roberts 40, regularly makes so much noise, either hammering or
grinding his welds, that I can hardly hear myself think(not that
there is all that much going on up in my attic)but it is I who must
wear ear plugs! Too bad there was not a way to build it so that it
could be tuned,like a steel drum,all fired up for some Calypso
music :-)Fortunately,he mostly works on Fridays and Saturdays but he
tells me he has a few weeks vacation coming up in the middle of
About the only way a person could pull off this sort of ear-drum
shattering racket in their"backyard" would be if they lived in an
area zoned for industrial...heavy industry...manufacturing. I cannot
imagine a regular neighbourhood ever putting up with it for very
long.At least not as long as it takes a part-timer to build a
Peter Lenihan,not yet deaf but a little crazy nontheless,from along
the shores of the St.Lawrence........
