I have just finished doing a rebuild of my Roar2 after an unfortunate accident involving falling ice. It also gave me a chance to add a new built-in rowing seat with storage. I've posted an article that the Duckworks readers might find interesting.

Chuck (USA) has just sent in his latest build pictures of his Sandy Strait 14. The latest build pictures of Tony's Cruise Control 5.2.

Here's our newest movie.


I ran across a fascinating American guy that lives in Thailand. He has built a catamaran and powered it with a very low cost longtail engine similar to those used in Thailand and Louisiana swamps, where they call them go Devils as they go like the devil through mud and weeds, etc. The builder has made several cruising videos of his boat in use on the rivers in Thailand and it looks like small boat heaven. The catamaran is fairly unusual and 18 feet long and 6 feet wide and can be sailed and goes 20 Knots under power and 10 Knots under sail. Builder says he can load on truck with one person! Video is one of many. Robb Moffett

Drug sub imitation...... The shape is looking good it looks like one of those drug subs I see on the net. If it was loaded with two tons of drugs it would sink deep in the water like those subs so I think without the weight it will be a good sea boat. I think I have just given a idea to those sub builders and the drug barons. It would be nice if they the barons paid me for the idea. I aint into drugs so to be caught on the open sea in this thing I think I might get arrested. The full article can be read HERE. Stewart

Out on the water off Newport, Rhode Island in the first race of the Little America's Cup, Steve Clark's brand new Aethon, sailing with the solid wingsail from his 1996 Little America's Cup winnerCogito, suffered a cruel capsize.
