Sailing Rowing Camping boat

Another rendering for the competition winning design of teh sailing rowing camping boat.
The Royal Dutch Sailing and Rowing club `De Maas` called for a design with sliding seats, sailing capability and `sleeping´ arrangement, and very shallow draft.

This rendering shows klinker construction and was for a clear indication that klinker building is all about flowing lines and precission, because all mistakes are well visible.
