  1. Both very beautiful. Thank you for posting! Love that something so traditional can be fast, too! A “sleeper” as they say in the automotive world.
    Katherine Ann raises my pulse but here in New England I really need a wheel house for year round cruising.
    The search continues…


  2. Hi, I’m the owner of Draumen, a Colin Archer 37ft, wodden cutter rigged and built in Norway in 1984. Best compliments for your designs.
    For some years, I’m thinking about a smaller classic seaworthy boat. I’m very impressed by the Bristol Channel Cutter 28 by Lyle Hess and recently I noticed your K.A. and K.G. 24. Well, they are smaller than BCC but look like to be very smart and I love gaff rig in general; that’s my favorite for sailing and long passages. However, I’d be interested in a wooden built boat and I’m wondering about the living layout as interior in your boat’s design because, I didn’t find anything just to have an idea. As my habits, I’d take into consideration the volume for the whole staff of 2 people (max3) and boat’s staff for a long passage.
    As last, what could the cost be or better, how many working hours could such a construction take?
    Another last: could it be possible a bigger plan for a 28, 29 foot, same type?


    1. Giovanni,

      Thanks for writing!

      There is an interior plan for the Kathleen Gee in the series of images at the top of the article. Here is a link to the image itself: https://antoniodiasdesign.files.wordpress.com/2017/04/kathleen-gee-interior-plan-blueprint-2k.jpg?w=1125&h=&zoom=2

      As to cost of construction the best answer to that would be to direct a builder to review these drawings and give you an estimate.

      Certainly a larger version could be done and would end up being a faster and more powerful boat. This could be taken in two directions. One would be to just stretch out what we have here and ease the lines. This would increase displacement, and therefore cost, some but not too much. The other way would be to make the longer boat larger in beam as well and use the additional internal volume for added interior space. This would take the boat into another class of vessel, one with more accommodations, but would also increase the cost to a much greater extent.
