Steve, I finally have got it. I wanted the pics to be large enough so one can see better. Sincerely,Jimmy Lee. Here is my e-mail, email@example.com I'm building another boat at present.
For anyone's info, I built the sail portion of the LYSby my own dimensions and ideas. I'm using leeboards on Her. This winter She may get a centerboard installed. I may make a larger sail also,maybe 75sqft.
Kevin... I was in your position some time ago...i.e. I knew zero about boat building... but worse, I was still iffy on design and skill level.
The difference, I think, is approach. I chose stitch and glue because it looked more straight forward than traditional approaches. But it's still wood and it's still a boat and it takes skill, patience and a total lack of hubris in the process...
Anyway, read my blog, I just started it and it'll be added to over the next few weeks...
Boat building is a PROCESS... it's hard, but it's worth it. And guess what, you need people to help you like the fine people on this board - don't alienate them.
I like the colors.
The LYS stern is tucked up too high.
