am seriously considering building it. Weight is about 2,700#. The
princess 22 is a lot less tender than a lot of other simular boats
such as NIS's.
I too am intregued in the Red Zinger...looks like a nice boat. I
need to make a decision soon as I am just about done with my current
project (Core Sound 20). I just want to make sure I am making a good
decision prior to starting a project that will take 1,200 hours or so.
- The spars didn't seem to have the elegance of the lining of the strakes. Maybe it was the foreshortening in the photos. I'll have to check out
Oughtred' s clinker boatbuilding book. I've immersed myself into John Gardner's books lately. Good job. Good luck on the centerboard.Michael Childs
