    About the practicality, after being sailing on it for years, including ocean passages, I can say this design is easy to handle, and well thought.
    Keeping in mind she's a gaff Schooner.
    Safe outside, and confortable inside.

    Thanks Gerard, that gives me the confidence that we will have a safe journey.
    My motto still is: “Be good to the ship and she will look after you”.

    I hope I can publish a fully rigged Shpountz next weekend.

    try to find interieur pictures aswell.

    here is one to keep everyone satified. Table not yet installed.

    Sorry don’t understand what you mean. What is it that disturbes your eye and what is a lump. My rudder, my stainless and not bronze, my prop.......???

    The arpeture is not faired out. It looks like 4 inches of flat material all around the prop.
    The leading edge of the rudder looks a few inches thinner than the aft edge of the keel.
    The rudder fittings are not faired.
    Lots of bubbles ....

    Don't take this the wrong way but I think the Auk is my favorite part. Just the perfect little dink. I bought plans for one many years ago. Someday..

    Next time I built a boat of this size I will invite you to help me fairing the keeltimbers. Then I have time to lay a nice teakdeck, building wooden panels for the interiour, have more time to do all the plumping and electricity. Etc etc. After 13 years of building alone it is time to go sailing.
    I don’t care about a few bubbels in the water and the loss of 0.001 knt of speed.
    Have a nice time fairing your! keeltimbers.

    Beautiful workmanship and love those shiny new blocks. She should sail reasonably well to weather with the board down.

    Rico, I do not mean to bust your stones or insult your boat. That is not what just happenned,
    It may be a flaw in my personality ,that I tend to trouble shoot most every boat I see. Extreme pragmatism .
    By n by, folks tend to ASK me to fix their boat, and I have "fixed" more than a few.
    Yes, It is time for you to go sailing.

    You're certainly right Bruce.
    But it's part of the design.
    I noticed Ricco shaped pretty well the end of the rudder.
    Mine is far worse as you can see.
    I thought to do the same Ricco did.
    But you know, we are all short of time when the boat is on the hard.

    Leave that rudder alone.
    From my experience your rudder will bite better in reverse with that flat trailing edge than a sexy looking feathered one.

    Saw that interior shot just now. Suddenly a big dollop of drool landed on my ipad.

    Out of work in french Guiana since all non urgent surgery is delayed. So I flew back home, and will start helping in public hospital this week.
    Full confinement here. All of us are safe.
    I'm one of those who did'nt take this epidemic as what it is. I changed my mind...
    Is Maine impacted ?

    It is almost inconceivable that such beautiful creations still come to us. It makes one hopeful for the world. It is almost like a new child, in a way.

    I had a good sail the last few days and want to share some pictures of Anna Margaretha with her sails.

    Ricco she is absolutely stunning and looks wonderful under sail. You must be sick of being told this - but you have done an absolutely amazing job and I am in awe of your work. Incredibly inspiring!
