With some of the newer more sophisticated designs the complex shapes demand using forms. Things like getting the bow to ride over a wave rather than digging in may require curves that the planks won't automatically accept. The folks at Oneocean have proven designs and aren't asking you to jump thru' a hoop for the hell of it. I'll bet if you built the boat the way Vaclav says you would see the logic of the building technique. Since you live in a place that has big water at every point of the compass you should make sure that what keeps your backside away from the sharks is put together by the book. Let us know what you decide. Charlie
