Anyway, Thomas Schmidt is home building a 40′ trawler "the traditional way"… wood frames, laid up hull, epoxy coating, the whole nine yards. His web page offers a fairly detailed build log, or you can order a self-published "book" for the total nitty gritty. I have read through most of the on-line portions with entries dating back to 2002, including several hurricanes, building collapses, etc. Its interesting reading and well done.
Makes the "book" tempting 🙂
