Several years ago, Wes Farmer, the son of Weston Farmer, asked us if we would be interested in selling his father's designs in our store. At first, I was not sure about selling plans that are half a century old with no designer to call if you run into trouble. Modern designers use different materials and different techniques. Then I realized that's the whole point.
Everyone knows that these traditional designs are much more difficult to execute, but they are classics. Some day you will not be able to find these designs anywhere. Besides, what about the challenge of building a boat where craftsmanship counts for something? No "liquid joinery" allowed. Build one of these boats, and you are a real boat builder.
Now Weston Farmer's plans are being handled by Dave Farmer, the grandson of the designer.
