    Looks like a little ship intended for big adventures.

    Looks interesting Paul and spacious down below, but I don’t know about trying to go forward on that deck......mind you with that camber I guess it’d probably be reasonably flat on the windward side when sailing.

    Is it in NZ?

    I wonder if it will get a Chinese Lug, in that case going forward might be looking out the bubble and reefing from inside? Sans headsail maybe not much need to go up there, certainly one good way to do it. I’d like more information on design front.

    Yes, the boat will get a junk rig, no need to go forward. The yellow post up forward is the tabernacle. Design is custom, you can read about it here https://anniehill.blogspot.com/2015/...ears-tall.html Follow the link in the article if you want the details of how and why.

    The integrated wind vane steering - at least I assume that's what it is - is an interesting idea. She's been chipping away at this build for a few years now.

    This is Annies "forever home". Custom design by David Tyler, twin bilge boards, twin rudders, a central stub keel that is mostly a big chunk of steel, and a single masted junk rig.
    Annie Hill, for those who arent aware, is a very strong advocate of Junk rig, and if I'm right she is the president of the Junk Rig Assn.
