Well today postie delivered a brown envelope postmarked 'Melksham' containing a set of plans for the Hazelnut.
My original intention had been to build a Raven but, after reading what seems like hundreds of threads on here, a Peterborough type seemed more suited to my needs (and prettier as well) - essentially still water on the Norfolk Broads, mainly solo (but in company with SWMBO + ankle biters in kks) short trips from a fixed base in the evenings or when the wind no blow for proper .
I have built from Paul Fisher's designs before (Stornoway 9' dinghy with built in buoyancy additional to his plans - can be viewed on either the SF Yahoo Group or here for those interested) so the technical process gives me no concerns, but be prepared for lots of issues as the fitting out proceeds.
I will be getting materials together in the New Year and then pushing on as the temperature allows. The aim is to have her on the water by the end of July at the latest, although Easter would be nice. This thread will (hopefully) be my conscience pushing me on.
