Colleagues Needed

It has come to my realization, a good length of time ago, that I could not mainstream 'Bezier Chine Design and Construction' on my own.  The time has come to reach out to other Yacht Designers and Builders who may see the possibilities of this 'One Off' true round design and construction method for metal hulls.  I believe that 'Bezier Chine' is the greatest advancement in metal boat design and construction since 'Radius Chine' construction came into being in the 1980's.

I am looking for a colleague or colleagues to join me in designing with 'Bezier Chine' in an effort to mainstream the method.  There is no pay, but I know you will enjoy designing aesthetic true round metal hull that are constructed as easily as a Hard Chined hull. 

If you are an amateur Yacht Designer, a self taught yacht designer, a student of Yacht Design, maybe a student or graduate of Westlawn, a seasoned Yacht designer, a metal boat builder, or just someone with the passion for steel boats, I ask for your consideration in joining my effort. 

So what do you get out of this?   I will freely disclose my knowledge, to you, on every aspect of the 'Bezier Chine' design process initially through my latest book 'True Round Metal Boat Design - Bezier Chine Design', which can be purchased on Amazon.  Purchase of the book is not required for intrested persons to contact me to discuss the possiblities.

You will be free to expand on the method to suit your needs.  You will have my blessing to design and build by the 'Bezier Chine Design and Construction' method.  Boats designed by you are yours, of course. 

So what does Dennis Schaffer get out of this?   I have a lot of time invested in the practical development of 'Bezier Chine'.  In essence, 'Bezier Chine' is my baby!  I see the possibility of joining forces or not with others at mainstreaming 'Bezier Chine Design and Construction'.

If you see the possibilities and practicality of 'Bezier Chine' not only from the standpoint of assisting me but from a standpoint that this is really a good process.   'Bezier Chine' breaks metal hull Designers free of the shackles placed on them by fabrication difficulties of past thinking.  'Bezier Chine Design and Construction' eliminates fabrication difficulties.  Join me on this basis alone.

My sole request:  If you do deside to give 'Bezier Chine Design and Consturction' a go, you refer to the method as 'Bezier Chine' design.  And if the topic ever cames up as to who was the orginator of 'Bezier Chine' I would appreciate it if you mention my name.  D. L. Schaffer
