    A video just to get an impression about RoG.

    A nice daysailer for fun. Will you sleep aboard sometime?

    absolutely! the fact that it has a large cabin for the size of boat was a huge factor in decided to build this design. I think it's very clever how the shelf in the bow drops down to the floor for sleeping. having a large surface like that is great for cooking, trip planning, etc.

    I saw a boat like this on the beach in Ft Desot for the EC Challenge. Looked well thought out. I look forward to watching your build.

    That is a scamp named "Fat Bottomed Girl" next to Bedard's RoG at the start of the Everglades Challenge!

    I just found your thread! Very interested to follow your build as I am contemplating the same. I currently own a Crawford Melonseed that I have entered in a couple of camp cruise events on the Pacific Northwest coast, and have found the Melonseed just a little too small for this purpose. I think the RoG would make a great Raid boat looking at the plans. Your Cradle on wheels looks great! I am hesitant to get fully invested in building a boat without going for a sea trial first .... not sure if there are any of these built on the Pacific North West. Look forward to seeing your progress!!!
