Nice work. 8)
That is one stout looking little sailboat with all those stringers and bulkheads. It looks weird upside down, for sure not a way you want to be when sailing :D.
Thanks Ruben!
Yes, she's very stout. I've been saying that to myself all throughout the build. It really gives me confidence that she'll be able to handle quite a bit when I'm out there sailing up and down the coast. BTW that middle roof beam is an ad on that wasn't in the plans. I added it more for practical reasons like: more places to ad hooks for overhead netting, places to attach lighting fixtures etc...

You will not find getting it on and off the trailer to be a problem it takes me around 15 but if i mount the mast and stuff in the parking lot then launching it all rigged it takes no more time to get in to the water than any other boat once you have dun it a few times. I can not count the number of times I have dun it with my boat once I got the bugs worked out. It has a pile of miles on it now booth under sail and on the trailer never had and problems.

That's good stuff, CaptUB! Thank you!

BTW the other day you mentioned waxing the hull...what type would you suggest? Like Turtle Wax? I'm almost done with the sanding/ fairing in the cabin and I want to wax her before flipping her upright again

So I am back from my little vacation and back to working on the boat again. CaptUB had recommended that I apply carnauba wax to the hull. I figured I would give it a try before getting back to work inside the cabin. Holy cow man what a difference !!!!! Here are a few pics of the finished product . Hope you guys aren’t getting tired of all these hull pics and I hope you can see the difference the wax has made . Thanks again CaptUB!

Thanks Fuzz! I don't need him to draw on anything but I may need his help with the electrical and rigging 8O
