D2, have you built in S&G before?

Lines look nice, but you are talking about some serious panel changes, ones that will affect the entire structure of the boat, which will require considerable effort in getting panel expansions correct.

The raised deck looks like another designer's boat, at least a very close cousin.

Raised deck looks pretty good to me. From the side. The bird's eye view I'm not quite sure what's happening to the walkaround deck.

The raised side can be a bulwark, not too difficult to build.
Let's see what Evan (the designer) has to say.

None of the changes are impossible, just difficult.

Are your goals just cosmetic changes?

Have you ever built a boat before?

Thankfully, the side panel nesting does allow you to raise the sheer considerably and not have to buy more plywood. So the 2 lower options are pretty viable, though the "higher sheer" one might block your vision a bit!

What looks good in a 2D profile drawing will be harder to reproduce on a 3D hull. You might just build the hull sides overheight and trim them to a nice sheer by eye.

The raised deck version will be most challenging and I don't think I would recommend it, because of the changes to the framing required that are not anticipated in the plans.

We can provide only limited help for these changes because they are so far beyond what the design intends. In short, for much of it you will be on your own in terms of interior framing etc.

Sounds like you could leave the deck level as drawn and build the raised sheer as bulwarks without too much trouble. Like Evan says, cut it oversize and "fit at time of assembly" to the lines that please you.

The top one looks like Davis' Bay Pilot 18... I like it.

Bulwarks is a snappy idea. They are easy to build as a separate piece, and can be built with slopes and angles like a tug to make her a little saltier.

Thanks for the added confusion. I was just going to start cutting panels this weekend... now what do I do? :doh: Oh well, get the frames cut first...
