- Oct 10, 2009I believe he got hold of fairly hefty planks, then cut, thicknessed, coved and tenoned the strips himself. A lot of extra work that way than just buying in the production strips, I suppose? I think it took about three years to get to launch, and some of that fulltime. Not much cost to launch as comparitively minimalist fitout - the sail rig cost almost peanuts! Seems to have proven a good sea boat.
I imagine the accomodations, even the cokpit, to feel a little like being in Robbsboat after a time. Crouching. Kneeling. Lotusing (?). -- But well protected and comfy.
