The plans

The first thing we did was to come up with a plan. My thoughts where it would be nice to have a movable home.  A place where you could live and pick up and leave if you didn't like the spot you where at. Always liked the water and hate driving, so a boat was the obvious choice. We talked to Herb Smith, a world navigator up in Maine, who we go sailing with when we visit Boothbay Harbor.  He asked a few questions of how we would like to travel on the water and then he recommended looking up George Beuhler and his Diesel Duck troller yachts designs on the internet.  We did and fell in love with the whole concept and design of his boats.
After considering all the options we decided on a wooden  44' Diesel Duck troller. Wood because that's what I work with and by using standard lumber the cost would be lower than traditional wooden boat construction. This picture above is that of Marlene and Benno Klopfer 41' Diesel Duck who's travels and adventures can be followed on:
