Excellent Lothar - she tacks beautifully and seems to have a fair turn of speed and I think you are getting more used to the controls.
What next now?

Well Geoff,

on the worbench is a 30 sqm skerry cruiser. This one will be a lot bigger with 2,35 m in length and more than 2,4 m Mast.



For my wife Heidi I made the drawings for a 1940's plywoodnoat design from Jac Iversen. This boat is not so long, but a bit more wide. So it could be perfect for a beginner. And it shall be easy to build:



Think we will start the building in some days.

Regards

Lothar

Hi Friends,

a little update:

I reduced a little bit of the sail area, because she was a bit to much on the side at a bit more wind. The mast is now 10cm shorter and the Genua 15cm lower. This makes the boat better to sail and more seaworthy. Now Svea is a true sailboat and not anymore a diva ok2

enjoy!

Sorry for some bad szenes, but it's difficult to sail and to make a movie at the same time.

Regards

She looks lovely Lothar. And not a hit of diving that I saw even running on what looked like a blustery day.

I hope you're feeling very proud of yourself!  :-))
