After nearly a year of working on my Navigator, I finally got around to creating a blog. Better late than never I guess <grin>. If anyone is interested, the blog can be found here:

I've recently completed a mostly paper boat. I say "mostly" because by mass it is easily more paint, wood, and sticky glue-type stuff. It is probably better described as a skin on frame boat with a fairly rigid paper skin for a hull, and a fairly minimal wooden frame. And it is made primarily from materials leftover from other projects or those slated for the trash bin. I spent $14 on some more varnish and a box of brass screws. The rest I found, impatiently waiting to be turned into a part of a boat. I've started a blog here. And at the top there is a link to a web album with more pictures, including the first few voyages. It was loads of fun, and anyone could do it. I look forward to hearing what you think! Grange

Here's a new video, featuring Jim Luckett from SailBoatsToGo, sailing our W500 upwind, standing up, sans outriggers. BTW, the W500 is 28.5" wide... I did something similar a few years back, with our smaller model (W300) and a smaller, DIY crab claw sail rig. Yoav,

I wish make known our class 10 '(DIY boat). It' s a amateur sailing class where boats can be up to 10 'of any type (monohull and multihull) and 8 sqm sail area up. The site is now unfortunately in italian [translated], but there are many photos. A movie (perhaps the only) is located at this link. We have fun like that! The three of Creedence songs have no meaning except "Molina" because the Italian sailors perceive "Bolina" (up-wind). Regards, Renzo Lionello

I'm Gianfi and I know that you like unusual boats like me! I only want to tell you that Corentin de Chatelperron is arrived in France after 9000 miles on a boat made in jute!

Maritime sensory overload? Here's a great slide show from last weekend's boat show when you get a few minutes to relax. Enjoy.


To kick-off two Puddle Duck Racer events, I composed a song and put it up at youtube. The photos are from the 2008 Duckworks Messabout at Magnolia Beach.

I just posted a boarding ladder blog on with some general discussion, drawings and a photo of the ladder I installed on my Matilda 20.

Don't know if you've seen this thing yet.  I stumbled on it because I live in the same neck of the woods.  Have not seen one in the flesh.

I think that you should create a permanent and prominent link to Warren Messer's redbarnboat YouTube Channel. He has oodles of helpful videos and his ongoing series on building his Granville Bay is a classic and should be watched by everyone who has ever dreamed of building a boat. Thanks, Tad Johnson
Aaah, I've found the 'gurgle' again! You know that satisfying gurgle of water passing under the hull, when there's no motor to obscure it. Aaaah, one of the most satisfying sounds in nature, especially when its created by a Welsford hull!!! I found some footage of my Truant (TruantSea) stacked away in my hard drive since 2007, so I've uploaded it to Youtube. Try this link... Go the GURGLE!!! Grahame
