I make add-on stabilization flotation tubes for hard dinghies. Perhaps your visitors might be interested in Dinghy Dogs.

I've just put a youtube video up on my website and on the blog. It shows my oldest two boys (Geoffrey and David) sailing in the very oldLazy E that Dave bought a while back. It shows how much fun you can have with an old plywood boat.

An interesting website of historical nature – if you like lapstrake (clinker) boats.

I stumbled across a truly special homebuilt.

Just returned from a boat camping trip from Lake Rotoroa, a very beautiful alpine lake in New Zealand's South Island. You could hardly feel the air on your face at times, and as I ghosted up to the jetty, I heard floating across the water "Wow, look at that!", followed by "Oh yeah, that's funny, I didn't think there was enough wind to sail in today". Any idea which one owned the fizz boat!?! Rob

Here's a couple more sites. One is Curt Bowman's trip in the Carolinas and the other is for you total nut cases who like to go off in little boats. I have to admit that these Jitterbug adventures are good. John Depa writes a good story. Jitterbug stories AND Curt Bowman.

Strike 18 trimaran by Woods Designs racing against F24, F9m etc on May 21st in British Columbia.

Chuck

WOW! Check out the attached clip from YouTube. I'd often wondered if something like that could be done. While I wondered, somebody did it. Beats hell out of my old Snipe.

Ed Foster

I really like John Vigors blog. This one about reading about sailing is good and I agree totally as I have saved my boat a few times from remembering things I read.

Stan

Wow, that is one honkin'big mostly wooden boat.

Brian

Here is a video showing the ease of a Woods Strike 18 for a fun day of sailing.

Chuck

I thought you might like to show this on your web site.

Just got back from the eastern messabout. Here is link with pictures and most of them have captions. I didn't take a lot of pictures of the other boats there but a lot of people have posted them on the yahoo group and I know that others will be writing articles.

The idea behind this blog is very simple, to post images and information on a 1001 boats and while we're at it raise a little money for charity.

Nicely put together video.

If you wish to follow along, here is the link to my latest boat build. It is called D'Arcy Bryn, a 15' cabin cruiser sailboat designed specifically for rougher waters at my request by Jim Michalak. This link should always take you to the latest post.
