Launch of "Shorebird"
Attached are photos of the finished product, launched last Wednesday. It was a 14 month labor of love and the satisfaction is great. I had a plan for the hull panels and bulkheads. I diverged from there and designed all the other features including the cabin the keel the centerboard, the rudder, the masts and sail plan. It sails, rows and motors. I have a soft cover over the hatch for sailing and a hard cover for trailering. I look forward to an extended vacation in southwest Florida beginning next month and ending around my 60th birthday in February!
