There are still reasons I feel to "copy" a boat design. I still want to make a modified copy of my NDK Greenlander. I love how it paddles I just don't fit the round coaming well anymore and their bigger boat version isn't the same hull. It's also grossly heavy. So at some point I'll take the lines off the hull and recreate it in wood/epoxy with a different deck and much less weight. Yes I'll have to ballast it to make it paddle correctly but I don't have to carry that ballast (water).
