Glen,  G'day

Now that the mast-folding and sail control are sorted ;D it only remains to have a hull to hang them on

Thought that you might like this site - dunno if you speak or read german, but the pictures speak for themselves

http://www.minisail-classic.de/

Have a look in "werkstatt" and "fotoalbum" (don't know what that might mean)

There are several guys making scow coasters, etc in similar size to yours

Intended only to encourage!

regards,

Thanks Andrew, appreciate the thought. I have got the hull mostly framed up by now, and I'm working on putting in a drop keel. I will get some photos done and posted before much longer.

Glen,

Family notwithstanding, you don't hang about!

We would love to see your pics when you can - what are you planking with?
