I ordered the plans for the Frolic 2 and just can't make up my mind. I love the Wooboto I have. I wanted to make a version with a 3/8" floor just to get it a bit stiffer, and Jim agreed that would do it. Then I considered trying to "stretch" the design for a bit more room. Then it dawned on me that the Frolic 2 hull if you follow the lines without the cabin...is a stretched Wooboto with a 1/2" floor to boot. Now that I am looking constantly at the plans I may actually like the cabin. Is there any Frolic builders out there with any opinions or just any opinions (pros and cons). Jim already weighed in saying to make the seats air tight for added flotation and saying that an additional bulkhead would be needed for the mast. I think without the cabin the mast could be shortened 6 to 8" also which will only make things safer. I also wonder about rowing the boat. The Wooboto rows very easily for me I'm not sure how much the extra 4.5 feet of length
and 6" of width will effect that. I'm not a long distance rower, and really don't care much for the idea of long distance rowing. I pretty much row out a little ways and put up the sails. I would like very much to do some traveling with this boat when it's done, maybe even some coastal "salt water" sailing. Anyways as always any thoughts appreciated.
