After 20 months of off & on work, I finally launched my peapod!

She sits on her lines pretty much right on the waterline, and rows nicely. Under sail, she's definitely a but tender. I need to sort out the tiller I suspect. I missed a few tacks because of the difficulty ducking under the long tiller, while hand-holding the sheet. I'd scoot forward to sneak around the tiller, and since I was just holding the sheet, the sail would go ahoo and we'd stall out mid tack. She also doesn't point to weather very well, so coasting into a tack didn't help.

Sadly, she was in the water for just 24 hours since I'm pulling the mother ship and packing up for the season here in Maine. I'll work out the details next spring or maybe sneak in a day or two before the real cold comes.

Beautiful!

I wonder if you can get your sailmaker to add a couple of lines of reef points? She looks similar to my Whilly Boat, which is pretty tender under sail, but does great with a reef tucked in. I'm also going to try adding about 100 lbs. of ballast, since she also sails nice with one passenger.

Top notch work. I hope you have many happy voyages.
