Since 1981, I have now designed more than 100 original small boats for rowing, automobile or sailing and 35 models of canoes from 1.8m (6 ') to about 9m (30') and developed some of them, 20 divers and 12 canoes, so that DIY builders can build their boat more easily or, since 1998, a kit with free and unlimited help from e -mail / SMS / phone if you need it.
