I'm making a scale Mucho Gusto (image just for reference, it's not mine) and am in the process of digitally creating plans of the frames and would like to label the parts correctly for when I cut them out. Thanks, I had seen that link when I was researching the boat but hadn't really taken any notice of the other plans on there before. If I get a chance after work today i'll draw up a sketch of what I know and what I don't know.

Bolger's first boat design was a 32-foot (9.75 m) sportfisherman published in the January 1952 issue of ''Yachting'' magazine+. Although his designs ranged through the full spectrum of boat types, Bolger tended to favor simplicity over complexity. From the 1990s, Phil Bolger teamed with his wife Susanne Altenburger, designing boats under the name Phil Bolger and Friends Inc. Bolger was a prolific writer and wrote many books, the last being ''Boats with an Open Mind'', as well as hundreds of magazine articles on small craft designs, chiefly in ''Woodenboat'', ''Small Boat Journal'' and ''Messing About in Boats''. Phil Bolger was non-conventional in many ways and, among many large boats, yachts and custom designs, took an interest in what he termed "evolving crafty ways of building boats". In the 1970s, Phil Bolger began a long and successful collaboration with Harold 'Dynamite' Payson+ with Bolger designing the boats and Payson building them as well as selling plans and writing books about how to do it. Following articles in WoodenBoat magazine, Dynamite Payson published ''Instant Boats'' (1979, 152 pages, 7" ? 10", 48 illustrations).
Bolger's first generation of "chine log instant boats" for home building was followed by a generation of "stitch and glue" (aka "tack and tape") boats. According to Bolger, sailing sharpies give good performance for the amount of sail they carry because of low to moderate displacement and light weight. Bolger is particularly known for his ''Square Boats'' (derogatorily known as "Bolger Boxes").
Both designers thought traditional rigs and boat types were suitable for small yachts, especially sailing boats. Bolger evolved the concept of traditional sharpies and by squaring off the bow and stern to give the longest useful waterline. He used traditional rigs, from the simplest "Cat rig" (single sail) through sloops, many yawls and schooners at a time when almost all other designers were concentrating purely on racing rule derived sloops. His experience over the years with well over 600 designs allowed him ample space to experiment with all kinds of designs, rigs and materials. Beginning in November 2002, Bolger and Altenberger began a re-examination of fisheries economics, as a result of the partial collapse of the industry both globally and locally in their hometown of Gloucester, Massachusetts.
They argued the key to this was a restructuring of the fishing fleet towards boats with lower complexity, lower initial cost, better fuel economy, and lower operating costs. Bolger and Altenberger expressed concern that existing governmental fishing permits issued based on length of the fishing boat, created an incentive to use inefficient wide and deep fishing boat hulls. The existing fishing fleet, composed of ever larger boats with high construction costs, debt loads and operational costs, in the long run forced fishermen to search for ever increasing catch sizes to remain economic while in a fight against regulatory quotas. Bolger and Altenburger argued that, ultimately, fishermen would find it more economically sustainable to do more with less.
This idea was described in the September 2004 issue of the magazine ''National Fisherman'', and again in 2007 as a series of essays published in the magazine ''Messing About in Boats''.

Bolger''' (December 3, 1927 – May 24, 2009), prolific boat designer, was born and lived in Gloucester, Massachusetts+.
He subsequently designed more than 668 different boats, from a 114-foot-10-inch (35 m) replica of an eighteenth-century naval warship, the frigate+ ''Surprise+'' (ex-''Rose''), to the 6-foot-5-inch (1.96 m) plywood+ box-like dinghy+ Tortoise.
Many of his hull+s are made from sheet materials — typically plywood — and have hard chine+s.
During this time, they emphasized the design of sustainable and fuel-efficient boats for the fishing industry. As far back as 1957 he designed "Poohsticks" as a small plywood rowing skiff to be simply and economically built at home (originally by his brother). This technique was made possible by the evolution of glues and the massification of polyester and epoxy resins combined with fiberglass tape. He is well known for designing a series of single chine sharpies+, typically long and narrow with a flat bottom. In his opinion, the sharpie shape provides a simple construction in the plywood era with the added benefit that sailing sharpies extend the waterline as they heel, thereby effectively increasing the hull speed+.
Bolger reasoned that a simple rockered bottom and vertical sides gives the most volume, and form stability, on a given beam. Generally, Chapelle noted that neither transom nor bow should drag be immersed when the boat is loaded, a point on which Bolger agreed. Most were configured as yawls (with main mast quite far forward and a small mizzen far aft). His comments on each subject in books as well as articles published in magazines of the period are based on his research, analysis, first hand experience and use of the different configurations.
Their proposal centered on the principle that, in an era of high fuel cost and economic pressure for modernization of depressed fishing ports, sustainable fisheries+ require a balance of business economics and public planning versus the available fishery resources. Simpler, lower powered, and lower cost boats can still be economical with lower fish catch rates. If the fishing permits were issued based instead on displacement tonnage of the hull, then the incentive would be for the fishing industry to use long, narrow and shallow hulls which would be more economical to purchase and to operate per ton of fish caught.
A consolidated fleet of smaller more economical vessels could make it possible for fishermen to survive with lower catch rates, lower debt load, lower fuel burn, lower insurance rates and lower depreciation. The project to build a prototype was authorised but was never developed on any significant commercial scale within Phil Bolger's lifetime. Bolger (December 3, 1927 – May 24, 2009), prolific boat designer, was born and lived in Gloucester, Massachusetts.

He began work full-time as a draftsman+ for boat designers Lindsay Lord+ and then John Hacker+ in the early 1950s. A subclass of these designed in association with Harold Payson called ''Instant Boats'' were so named because they were intended to be easily built by amateurs out of commonly available materials.


Also, they participated in a large military commission with the Naval Sea Systems Command+ on new designs for military landing craft+ utility boats. From this simple start he went on to develop a large number of designs for small- and medium-sized craft using plywood as a material for one-off construction at home or by small boatyards. Unlike traditional boat construction which involves building of jig and full size lofting+ of the shape of the hull prior to construction, the Instant Boat method uses shaped plywood panels on pre-shaped frames made of plywood and standard dimensional lumberyard wood. Generically known as the "chine log method" or "simplified chine log method" the technique consists of (i) cutting body panels to a predetermined shape as given on the plans, (ii) wrapping them around frames or bulkheads, (iii) adding chines (small section planks of lumberyard wood) along the joints (either internally or externally) and fastening them together using glue and mechanical fasteners (nails or screws).
Power sharpies can use low-horsepower motors (see, for example, the Bolger ''Tennessee,'' and ''Sneakeasy'' designs) yet reach planing speeds in sheltered waters. After experimenting and studying traditional sharpies and the writings of small-boat historian Howard I. Later in his career Phil Bolger and Friends developed modifications to the simple sharpie bow to avoid alleged hull slap at anchor at the expense of a much more complex geometry.
Even many of his centerboard designs had boards that were off-center or all the way to one side or the other (for example, the ''Birdwatcher'' and the ''AS29''). His book '100 Sailing Rigs "Straight talk"' later reedited as '103 Sailing Rigs "Straight talk"' provides a fascinating look at both rig configurations and sail types as well as his insight into a subject in which he was undoubtably an expert. He is further very clear in explaining the mistakes and corrections he made in each case, and why. This results in quick construction and less requirement for skilled craftsmanship, and has proved appealing to amateur boat builders as well as many later designers who have followed in his footsteps, albeit much less prolifically. The book described all the basic techniques (gluing, nailing and screwing with some fiberglass) to produce five designs: 12' Teal, 7'9" Elegant Punt, 12' Kayak, 31' Folding Schooner, 15'6" Surf, and 20'9" Zephyr.
Major critics of sharpies point to the fact that they tend to pound under certain conditions and that the relatively shallow draft makes them unseaworthy.
Chapelle+ and others, he developed the theory that the optimum chine line for a sailing sharpie should represent a regular curve without breaks, changes in radius or straight sections. In some designe an open bow can allow passage to land if the boat is beached, space for holding anchors and cables, or clearance to step and unstep a mast. He concluded that a single leeboard is sufficient in many cases on small boats, and that rigs could be stepped off the centerline without much effect on performance. However, the panels are only temporarily held in place using nails, duct tape, cable ties, masking tape, wire or other mechanical means, while the seams are filled (both inside and outside the hull) with a resin and filler paste covered in one or more layers of fiberglass cloth or tape which in turn is saturated in resin.
He further reasoned that the curve of side and bottom should match as much as possible to reduce turbulence.
Bolger advocated leeboards as being a simple means of providing lateral plane to all types of sailing vessel, eliminating many of the disadvantages of centerboards, daggerboards and keels, following broadly in the concepts of L.
Once the resin hardens, the mechanical joint is stronger than the joined plywood and therefore structurally sound. Sharpies may be considered one of the simplest types of boat from the construction point of view. He further reasoned that the sharpie was an ideal shape for a trailer sailer with either leeboards or bilgeboards to provide lateral plane. Francis Herreshoff+, various years his senior and, as stated by Bolger, one of the most influential yacht designers from his perspective. The boats in Paysons book were designed for use on protected waters and none was self-bailing or designed to self-recover in case of capsize. Payson again popularised the technique in his book ''Build the New Instant Boats'' (1984, 160 pages, 8" ? 11", 110 illustrations - Also still in print).
However, Bolger designed many other boats using this building technique, including the ocean crossing AS-39 (or Loose Moose II) as well as a significant number of other boats. In this book Payson introduces what he termed "Tack and tape" to the greater American public.
In 2007 Payson published his last book ''Instant Boatbuilding with Dynamite Payson'' which basically explains both techniques in less detail than the previous books and presents complete plans for 15 boats by Bolger.
