Sending a couple of pictures of a boat Im currently
building, workname "the Kraken" after the horrible
The original Sea-Monster: "Kraken"
Bought an army-surplus aluminum hull a couple
of months ago. It has a flat bottom, 15 times 6 feet, just a
bare hull with no seats. Think it will be an excellent campingboat
for sheltered waters.
Last year I built a Bolger Brick, and was surprised
with how well the tiny boat is sailing. I was thinking of using
a similar type of sail and leeboard for this boat, only bigger
and with a mast that can be easily lowered.
The boat will have two bunk beds, icebox and a
kerosenestove. The cabinroof will be finished next week and
I will start building cabinwalls as soon as the weather allows.
Right now the hull has ten inches of solid ice
on the floor…
