From Wikipedia: "Monk began his independent career as a naval architect by designing and building his "Plan No. 1," the 50 ft. bridge-deck cruiser Nan, which became his home for seven years, moored at the Seattle Yacht Club, and was briefly his office. His designs were built by many of the Pacific Northwest builders like Blanchard Boat Co., Grandy Boat Co., Jensen Motor Boat, Chambers and Franck, Forder Boatworks, McQueen Boat Works, and Tollycraft among others. Monk designed commercial vessels which included tugs and cargo carriers. He also designed the "Super Shrimp Trapper (SST)" Mimi for Ivar Haglund, launched in 1967. Monk continued to design boats up until his death in 1973 at the age of 79. He had "produced more than 3,000 boat designs ranging from 6 foot dinghies to yachts and workboats in the 150 foot range."; Ex-Library
