57’ Motor Sailer “Tar Liom” with a tender and “Tender To”, a 9-1/2’ lapstrake dinghy.

“Tar Liom” is designed for wood composite construction, while “Tender To” is designed for traditional lapstrake or for lapstrake plywood.

Very nice Tom!
Especially the lap strake hull of the tender including the detailing is beautiful.
Best, Gerard

Thank you Gerrard!. It was good fun especially lining off each plank!

It’s always nice when you have fun in labor intensive jobs. That is often very satisfying.
Your hull reminds me of a Grasshopper script that I made nearly 10 years ago and share for free over



That is very cool! I’ve yet to develop any abilities with grasshopper.

I did the dinghy - and the other lapstrake boats "Plank by Plank " - incorporating an overlap with a bevel - and vary widths to curves of the boat (Narrower on the tight sections - broad on the flats). I can attest that although slower - I think the real thing is easier!

I’m in the process of producing tables of offsets and construction drawings for these boats - a WIP is shown.
Thank you !
