Group Description

Origamiboats forum has been created to explore all aspects of a unique and revolutionary method of building frameless steel sailboats. The technique is known as "folded steel" boatbuilding, or "origami steel" boatbuilding. Many of the steel boats of this type on the BC coast have been designed by Brent Swain. The type is also built in aluminum as well, though steel is most common. Examples of these tough-as-nails yachts have circumnavigated this old earth, and survived intact some hairy scrapes with unforgiving objects. Browse the files and photos sections for images which illustrate how these boats are built, and the places they have visited around the globe.


We are here to share notes and experiences on construction, performance, maintenance, cruising, rig choices, living aboard, and whatever else strikes your fancy regarding the type. The group is moderated by Alex Christie and Brent Swain of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.

For info on ordering books and plans from Brent, contact him at brentswain38("at")yahoo.ca (replace "at" with "@" to send mail) or find both of us in the File section on the menu under Contact Information.
