Re: Mike Smith's TW28 build

Welcome Mike
The TW28 family is growing! The TW28 is a perfect boat for long trips. I know, I built one. Don't forget to also enjoy the construction of the boat, it is an adventure.

Re: TW28 Luka

Peter, next week the Tough girl is going to Belgium. We're coming! I'll call you soon. I can indeed confirm that a TW28 is a perfect boat for two people to make longer trips. She is a stable, easy to sail and comfortable boat. Like the Luka, the Tough girl has a four cylinder Mitsubishi of 40 hp, sh...

Re: Project TW28
