I like that boat too! The original was built in southern B.C.. Quick and
dirty. tarp sails and an old 20 hp motor. Everyone said it was fast and
comfortable. Original owner sold it to a livaboard.
That's the Georgia Straits and seas can really build up there. Opposing
wind and tide. Great sailing
4 guys could form a conglomerate and build one piece each and the forth
the sail rig and outboard(lights and electrical)......could build it in
a month or two
One piece boat would be a quicker build BUT with three moves you could
store a 40 ftr in you yard That's a lot of winter storage $$$ Hull speed
8.5 knots. Pretty easy to make un-sinkable.
