Hello all,


It is with respect that I am joining you in order to learn more about your craft and the subject of your passion.

As an architect I believe floating structures are next in the evolution of our built environment. My life's work, is now culminating in the unusual combination of water and buildings.


As I learn enough to ask the right questions I am looking to find people who are willing to explore modeling things that do not yet exist. Things that float but are not ships.

(Unless I am mistaken, the largest floating objects in the world are the floating bridges of Washington State (See the SR520 and Hood Canal bridges)).


If you are interested in these ideas please let me know. I would like to find a way to put the skills of model ship builder to another good use.


Thank you for your time and attention.
