She looks great on the water and it sounds like a well behaved boat. Sometimes my V10 doesn't come around so well when tacking in light winds. I learned that when that happens, I can grab the boom and push it to back the sail for a few seconds and she swings right around. Sail on. 8)

Looks real nice, good to hear she sails well.
The more time you spend in her the better you will get, you will figure out what she likes.

Thank you all for your kind words.

I would also like to thank all the community on this forum for the encouragement, the inspiration and the know-how during these three years of building.

Thank you all, again.

It’s been 15 years since the first splash! The kids have grown up, the boats I mess with have sized up, but the joy that this little boat gives me every time I sail her remains the same!

Thanks again to all the community in boatbuilder central for the inspiration and the encouragement!
