    Here's a little boat Mikey Floyd designed and built based on his interpretation of James Caird.

    As interesting as the James Caird replica is, why would anyone replicate a boat that was built from a lifeboat using whatever was available at the time? Clearly the best results are not had using what's available in a survival situation. Better to design and build using more conventional materials no?

    I love this boat. Not the first time Iíve seen her, and I still am just GOBSMACKED. This particular series of choices make exceptional sense to my aesthetic proclivities.

    It brings lust and pain into my heart simultaneously.

    Peace,
    Robert

    Its an interpretation, its actually nothing like the JC at all. What are the conventional materials thou speaketh of? There was no doubt some luck, a lot of bravery and skill bringing the original JC across the wild Southern Ocean, and even if a small part of the boats design was some help in that great feat, then i see no harm in building a similar boat, even if not intended for the same journey.

    pretty boat, curious about the design being based on the James Caird, I seem to remember someone saying this previously.... not much of a resemblance other than general size, and rig shape type.... many differences...?
