Re: Concensus on Stevenson's Projects Vacationer and/or Weekender
I guy around here built one, sailed it once, was hugely disappointed, left it on its trailer for a long time (rotting), then tried to sell it for $5K. He ended up donating it to a charity auction where it was bought by a local boat builder for $100 who put it out in the meadow behind his house for his kids... like a playhouse.
"Best use for it," he said.
Probably not a consensus view.
