My adventures and probably misadventures in building "Vertigo" a custom racing sailboat

And More Taping!
Made a big old fillet along the edge of the cabin. Since this joint already had a strong structural fillet, I used tons of micro-balloons to create a really light weight mixture to fair this joint. Then I glassed the seam with tape.
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!
