Even though most of my experience has been aboard sailing vessels,  my greatest interest lies in motor vessels. While many young designers are almost exclusively interested in designing fast vessels, I am primarily interested in vessels utilizing displacement and semi-displacement hull forms. When designing any motor vessel, fast or slow, I aim to consider function before form. My experiences while standing watch as a deckhand on tall ships have taught me the importance of functional design.
