Ten years in the making, The BIG Sailboat Project
tracks the gritty effort of two gals as they pursue their dream of building and cruising a 43 foot steel
sailboat. Located a 1000 miles from the coast in rural Alberta, Canada
, the duo decide on steel
as their building material, which they shape into a Bruce Roberts
designed 43 MKII Long Keel Cutter
Volume I contains five episodes covering steel construction from keel
to fully enclosed vessel.
Volume II contains six episodes covering finishing and rigging
the vessel through launch and sea trials.
Each episode is approximately 23 minutes long, and includes documentary footage of hull
construction artfully edited and interspersed with incredible 3-D animation illustrating steel construction techniques.
