Stringering The Deck
During the first part of February, I was able to continue work on the deck. I used 3/8 ply to build a system of plywood stringers. In the photo looking forward, you can see the halfpipe I built for my boys for Christmas--one of the many reasons, I didn't get anything done in December.
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!
