I go to the shop at my dad's place down the road. :wink: The name of Fred's shop in Toronto is Object 2 Skiffworks. I used to have contact info for Fred, but can't find it now. I think Brad (BWR here) still has it. Try PMing him.

There used to be someone in the Seattle area that built boats in collaboration with Paul Bieker, or maybe Paul built his own boats, I'm not sure. Anyway, that stopped when he got snatched up by an America's cup syndicate. Not sure what their status is now. Chris Henderson (also in Seattle) built his own boat, and does all sorts of boat rehab and spar building work. Try asking on the I14usa.org site.

Most fourteens are considered custom builds, as there are so few made, and then there is the boat Shu is making :-)

Kris Henderson would probably be happy to build you a boat, he does excellent work, just built me a new rudder system, and modified trunk to go with my new Russell Brown blades.

Russell http://www.ptfoils.com/

No matter who builds your boat, you'll most likely end up with Russell brown blades.

This was actually something i have been wondering for a while. not that i have anywhere near the money to buy a new boat, but i was curios about all the different builders, hull designs attributes of different designs and builders ect.
