    Default beach cruisers

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Not much wetted surface area on that sloop, though. I think it'll do OK.

    Thank you, Paul. I have grown fond beaching legs along the Maine coast. Very useful bits of kit!

    Marginally different perspective, but entire mast, yours for perusing.

    Next Boat is probably going to have a keel. But the ability to haul out on a beach is a nice, here I wanted to scrape a carpet of mussels off before putting her on a trailer after two years of deferred maintenance.

    If you would have a good boat, be a good guy when you build her - honest, careful, patient, strong.

    Crap! I better stop making books and get to work! Actually, I needed something fun to draw when the heat comes. Thanks, Yo!

    I still think this would be a fun beach cruiser.

    Nah. Sand is hell on droids. Why do you think that first R2 unit Uncle Owen tried to buy from the jawas had a bad motivator? The lesson is clear: beach cruising and droids don't mix.

    Sure. But, a two person tent would fit RIGHT on the platform, there, door to the main hull. Or, a body could use the spars as a ridge pole of sorts for a simpler tarp. I think it would paddle okay, and maybe even sail, a bit.

    Just donít build one of of sus ply because you can get itÖ

    Sigh... Droids get no respect anywhere.

    Why would a droid need a tent? Especially and astromech, made to work in space?

    It is a working model for a boat I think would be a great beach cruiser, though. With the flare and rocker and asymmetry to the main hull, it looks nicer than is should for such a dumb simple shape.

    Itís currently being sailed by a small stuffed cat, flying the outrigger. And the sail is laced on now, and the ghastly electrical tape is gone.
