JWD recently posted a news item about their Amatasi 27' ethnic design winning the Classic Boat Magazine design contest for an ecological fishing boat design.
Classic Boat offers digital subscriptions for those of us who do not live in places where the magazine is readily available in paper form. The July issue, which contains the article about the contest results, is also available to browse online:
Use the page selector at the bottom to scroll to page 54 for the beginning of the article. There's a nice discussion from the magazine of Amatasi's merits, and a sidebar from James about his goals for the design.
Personally, I'm excited about the new design, thrilled with the recognition it's receiving, and will be watching for study plans.
