Olfara and Stevador were two 36 foot Yachts form the same lines plan by Jay R. Benford, one with a “great cabin aft” long keel, and wheelhouse and the other one with traditional outside cockpit design and a fin keel / skeg configuration. I built them in the mid eighties. This post is to invite you all to the third in my series of “Shipyard Memories” blogs. The first was about a traditional carvel planked ketch, the second about two catboats in framed plywood construction and this one will cover “Cold Molding” a method of boat building I often describe as “building one very large custom sheet of plywood the shape of a boat”.
I’ll get the blog started in the next couple of days. Hope all you sailors will enjoy it.
