The boat has been launched! More details in the build log. See link below.
This site started out as a dialogue about which boat to build that would best fit the needs of my family. It was intended to be a place to organize ideas and to generate conversation as to which boat would best fit given a list of requirements. Originally, this site was about selecting a boat; now I am adding finishing touches. Here is the link to the build log, which will be slow in being updated. The boat was launched and successfully sailed a couple of times, as well as a couple of times where the experience taught valuable lessons.
The boat selected was the Pocket Cruiser by Stevenson Projects, Inc. It met all the criteria listed below and I just liked it a whole lot!
