Re: A Whiily Tern in Oz
Looks really good Peter! Turn-over's not too far off.
I built my Whilly Boat without flotation tanks, but now I wish I had put them in. I test-capsized her for the first time yesterday. With two big fenders lashed under the main thwart, I was able to climb back in and start to bail. Boat was very unstable, and gunwales kept going under. I did eventually get enough water out to be able to row, but it would have been impossible in any kind of a sea.
Maybe I'll build those tanks in someday!
