My job is to design boats and then to market plans as well as full size patterns. I have a network of partners, marketing kits and/or able to build a boat for you. Some partners are also marketing plans and are able to give translation and/or assistance in your language

I am interested having other partners, able to sell kits in more and more countries, and I will consider any demand.
