My adventures and probably misadventures in building "Vertigo" a custom racing sailboat
Thursday, September 25, 2008
The boats lower port chine had only one layer of glass on it. So I added another layer of tape so that once I add the final layer of cloth, the lower chines will have 3 layers and the uppers will have 2 layers.
This boat has never been built but what I'm hoping for is that if an old T-bird and a sexy little I550 got together, this boat would be their love child. For more info, check out the history section at the begining of this blog.
The boat is 26' feet long and 8' wide. With it's hard chines and tons of sail area it should go very well to windward--even in light air. I'm planning on a huge asymetrical chute for downwind which with the boats flat botom should get it planing very easily. Hopefully it'll be fast and fun!
