    Very nice, Peter. It's been a long struggle against the odds. I guess you could use the mizzen as a main if the wind gets up a lot.
    Happy sailing in 2019!

    One for the 'small boat pron' thread I think.
    Looks sweet Peter.

    That looks really beautiful. Are you going to paint “front” and “back” somewhere, as it’s not immediately clear which is which.

    Sailing in the drive, on top of a mountain………….



    When I built the Mac the first 'sail' was in the drive, and I had a beer on board as well.

    Congratulations indeed Peter!

    Very nice Peter! I've been watching your progress and am aware of the adversity you experienced in the later stages of the build. Congratulations on a job well done and best wishes for your upcoming sailing ventures. / Jim

    It will be Jim', it will be although I've discovered I like boat building, if not painting, a LOT!

    I actually don’t mind painting as long as it stays on the hull.

    Confess to actually really liking painting. It’s fillets I can’t stand. So how about if I paint your boat in exchange for you smoothing out my fillets?
