Hello from Chicago!

Hi all,

I built my first and only sailboat from blueprints from WoodenBoat Magazine, the "Sprinter 14". Don't get on the water as much as I'd like, but hope to this fall. I'll try to attach some pics. I'm also very interested in marlinspike stuff and knots and recently bought a few classic books on the subject.

That's amazing. Building and sailing your own boat is truly a rare thrill.

Wow! If that is your first boat, I can't wait to see your second!

Maybe you can build one for me??

Great work, and please, take lots of pictures!

Thanks, Tom! Actually, I did build another one after this one. I'll try to get some decent pics up of it----the 'Skimalong 2', a 16' cedar strip kayak also from a set of plans from WoodenBoat Magazine!

Sadly, after 2 projects, I have become 'sensitized' to epoxy resin and can't work much with it anymore without serious allergic skin and mucous membrane reactions--even with a mask.

That is tough, but there are other glues and construction methods.

Thanks for your work, and that does suck.

Like Wandering says, are there other materials that you could work with?

Welcome Mark! From one fellow Chicagoan to another.

Now are you going to sail that boat in the Mac?
