Bill Blaisden has been building a Threefold 6 in Michigan the past few years and it is nearly complete. These photos show from early in the build through to getting wet. Bill's boat has the high-volume amas that we introduced a few years ago to replace the lower volume amas of the original design.
The Threefold 6 is multi-chine plywood with stitch-&-glue joints at the chines. Construction is quite robust, giving a strong little boat with good performance, that can be built by any reasonably competent amateur builder.

He will do the launch when he receives his sails and
