    Default Chase Small Craft Calendar Islands Yawl design

    Hi forum-ites,

    Some of you may have seen my
    build log for my Clint Chase-designed Calendar Islands Yawl, which I finished building in time for the summer sailing season. But since the season has now ended for me, I started writing about my experiences using the boat. For those who are trying to find a boat to build that will be a good daysailer and camp-cruiser that is manageable and beachable by just one or two persons, you can read more about my experience sailing this boat on my blog at
    GreyFoxboat.wordpress.com

    I guess blogs are normally contemporaneous, but I was sailing over the summer not writing, so I'm now playing catch-up. It's also a little light on photos and maybe heavy on prose, but I was sailing not photographing much either. Next year, who knows, maybe GoPro footage and virtual reality...

    I had a ton of fun and only a few misadventures with the boat so far, and while I didn't manage to go cruising in it yet, which is what I built it for, I shook it and me down to where I am quite confident in the boat and what I can do in it next summer. I think Clint has come up with a great design with the Calendar Islands Yawl.

    A nice, breezy read that makes me wish it were still summer. Keep it up.

    Great read! Please keep it up.

    So many times we follow the construction of these boats but we don't get to see them in action. Thank you for sharing.

    I'd go give it a read but after taking any number of stabs at it can't get there. How did you guys do it?

    I copied and then pasted this: GreyFoxboat.wordpress.com

    It's not clickable by itself.
