David Nichols David L. Nichols has been building boats and making sails for over fifteen years.


When he isn’t designing sails or building boats you’ll find him in the boats he’s designed and built. He feels that the only way to truly understand boats and sails is to use them.


A graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, he has written for boating magazines like WoodenBoat Magazine and Boatbuilder, as well as writing and producing boat building videos.
