Hello everyone

New to CF, not so new to sailing. Building a 34 schooner. What do you think?

Re: Hello everyone

Greetings Secfly. Looks very promising - you boat builder guys amaze me. I cheated and bought one already made.

Re: Hello everyone

Secfly, very handsome vessel. I am well aware that the disease can strike anywhere and there is little one can do when struck except go with the flow.

I have worked on my wood boat restoration in fits and starts over many years. Have accelerated the process in recent years and hope to complete mine in about 2 years.

Welcome to the forum. Stick around - maybe we can share photos and progress.

Re: Hello everyone

Thanks everyone. Looking forward to the discussions on the forms. May need to pick some brains on how to do some things later.

Re: Hello everyone

A freind of mine built a very similar design in NZ and put a full brigantine rig (hemaphodite brigantine if you want to get pedantic) on her. Looked stunning. Anyway nice work, and welcome.
