    When I told him I wanted to put an articulating sprit and a spinnaker on it, I was happy to hear the mast is engineered for it. But I was surprised to hear he had Forte re-enforce the mizzen for a trapeze attatchment! I better budget in a longer tiller extension. Can you imagine?

    I'll still need to sell Starbuck to finance this project, and find a place to build it, but I decided I was going to make it happen one way or another, someday. So I ordered the centerboard. He'll glue up western red cedar and mill it on his CNC machine.

    So first up I'll have to learn about sand casting and melting lead. The lower part of the centerboard blank is cut off and used to make the mold for a 75 pound "shoe". This is going to be fun!

    What beautiful woodwork! It will be fun to see you on the bay in that little boat, Stephen. What will you name it? Is that douglas fir inside? It looks like the stairs in my house.

    Thanks Jackie. I haven't decided on a name yet. Any suggestions? It's all Okoume plywood.

    Does he sell a CNC-cut panels kit? That would save a LOT of time!
