Looking for a place to start a discussion of design and construction questions I’ve started this new site. It has the benefits of WordPress.com behind it. Easy to manage and straightforward to use.
One of the things I like best about this concept is that it removes the trappings of an adversarial relationship from between the designer & client. This should, and can be, a cooperative and mutually beneficial relationship. It thrives on trust and openness between the parties involved. The crowd-sourcing process “negotiates” the development of that trust and channels our overtures of cooperation into the start of a vital relationship. I’m excited about what this can lead to! I hope you are as well.
This was the title to a post on my home site. It evolved into Boats for Difficult Times. Its original impulse deserves an airing.
Our love of boats is like a dance. Designing them can also be a dance; an intimate involvement between designer and client. As with everything we do on the water, We’re in it together!
