vega 1860/swab, thanks for the greeting

I understand you are at sea...I would gladly trade places with you. Since the early 60's I've been threatening to drop everything and set an ouyward bound course but, a new family and career took center stage....my boat/s were put on the back burner. Now 40 some years later, I MIGHT get around to taking my boat off the drafting board.

Not at sea at the moment; no internet access out there. We are moored in Honolulu.

"Off the drawing Board"? Your own design? Or another's that you plan to build? Or just a figure of speech?

the drawing board boat/s

Actually I have two designs I have been playing with for too long...one, a30' modified dory...sail...liveaboard. The other, a 30', sailing pram/garvey...live aboard. Am too damned old for much blue water voyaging so I plan on coastal travel. A 30' live aboard should be plenty big as I will be doing a lot of poking around ashore along the north west coast....got family in Alaska too...neither boat is MY design...I'm just massaging two different proven boats .........George L

Still pretty cool. I've never built anything larger than a dinghy. Do let us know how it goes.
