November 2012 Nearly finished
After quite a long hiatus I am back at work on the boat. Having reconsidered the pros and cons of using a dark coulour for the top strake, dark won out and I painted over the white with Indigo Blue, the results are striking.
I mounted a good quality outboard bracket to hold my 8HP Evinrude and just have a few loose ends to finish off before getting the boat and trailer registered. I have found that rigging the boat and choosing the fittings has been the most difficult part of the entire build. I think that John could have included more detail in the plans. It has been a steep learning curve. I have had the mast and sails up twice and each time I have made minor adjustments to the rigging.
