Re: "Free boat" seaworthiness

oh. so they don't have good sailing qualities? the construction method is much like the instant boats. I like the traditional look, but I think if I built a boat, I would lift the lines from my dinghy and use them as the basis of a much larger boat. although I have concerted it to long keel, and made a sprit sail for it, it is a modern performance hull and has great sailing qualities. better with the shallow keel. enlarged to, say, 25 feet, and add enough freeboard to give decent head room inside, it would work out nicely.

but I digress. today is the moment of truth and I should go to sleep. I have to be there in 6 hours.
