Re: Lenihan Zen
- this is from a conversation I had with Emilio in 2003.
Recently (Affter three years, first one to make a model) I'm close to
the finish of my wonderful Bolger's Long Micro, to sail in West
Mediterranean (South East Coast of Spain). I think mine is the first
LM in Spain (probably the first Micro too).
I'm Keen on AS29, but Dave & Anke's Luna is probably my best option to
"do it myself" a new boat for longer voyages (North Africa), best
acomodation for a family of 5 members, etc. I like very much the
iconoclast but respetuous actitude, open to make changes that Luna
I, modestly, had maked my own changes over the LM design: solid oak
plywood-sandwiched bolted keel, steel rudder, dry cockpit, convertible
roof of doghouse keeping the companionway, structural water and fuel
tanks, adeed bulkward to make interior lockers and exterior galley
sink, back self-drying cockpit, etc.
Here I send recent fotos of mi boat, where you can observ the changes
If you want some commentaries I could make them, but in spanish.
to contact Emilio send mail to ejordan at wanadoo dot es

- Hi Leo,
thanks for documenting your AS29 build, and thanks for that contact
info for Emilio's Long Micro, and the photos at your site. Do you know
if Emilio has launched his LM? Is he cruising the Spanish Med coast?
He certainly made some interesting modifications.
