    She's not very big. Good thing I'm not tall (5'-7"). This would not work very well for you bigger guys. For me though, I think she'll be pretty...

    That's a sensible suggestion. Meadow Bird 16 has a similar profile. She's a very pretty design. Couple of reasons. It's strip built (not for...

    I think I like building as much as sailing. Or, maybe more sailing when the weather is nice and building when the weather is cold and wet. I've...
