$1995 USD




Humm..... and then how do you realistically go about getting the hulls made? Do these detail the form structure of the hulls so that you can make your own mold?

I think there were more than 21 sold as I think the plan set I have is more than that but I would need to check. The plan set is languishing in my office draw, always too busy to build it at the moment, shame.


How much did these plan sets sell for?? Just curious.

Here's two boats in a picture together that I never thought I'd see in my lifetime.




Pretty funny! I actually had the pleasure of teaching a guy to sail on his, who had bought one for his young family to take trips on. About the first thing I said was ya know, this boat doesn't do anything very well. He laughed and said he knew. But after sailing with him, I get why he bought it. You can't buy a camper with the amount of space inside that thing. It's unreal. 6 adults can easily sleep below. So for $30k, you get a boat and a camper. I was happy to get off of it though.... what a pig of a sail with that water ballast.... It just lays on its ear in 7knts of wind.

The shims did in fact work! Yay! I only added them to the rear arms since the fronts definitely touched already. Went out in 20+ yesterday and didn't hear a thing!
