My wife and I sail a small gaffer that we built - here she is, the day after she was launched.
We sail in Port Phillip Bay in Melbourne, Australia
, which is kind of a boring place to sail. Here is a view.
Here are the builders - JR
We have stayed on the boat for up to 5 days days at a time, and she is comfortable and lovely so long as we have access to a shower
on shore! We plan to truck the boat up north later this year (after we retire in August) and, basing at a marina for the showers, spend a season or two in the sunshine.
Building a boat was a lifelong dream, and now that I've done it, I wish I had started with a bigger one ...
Are there any more gaffers on this board?
