WHETHER your interest is
peaceful sailing on the sea where you can relax, reflect and feel at one
with the world, or skittering at high speed over the surf to enjoy the
thrill of motion, we have a project for you!
Our manual, Affordable Boat Building, provides fully detailed
plans, with photos, drawings and parts lists, for building 3 distinctive
boats at home: 2 sailboats (the Weekender and the Midday
Moon) and a super-fast hydroplane (the Surf Dart).
The Midday Moon is an ideal family sailer for use on the
protected waters of a bay, small lake or river. It will accomodate up to
4 adults or 2 adults and 3 children. Its 15½ foot length is fast,
maneuverable and well balanced. With a breeze as mild as 4 mph you're on
Surf Dart is rugged and very fast! It can fly atop the
water at speeds in excess of 65 mph with as little as an 18 hp outboard.
This craft is a 3-point hydroplanetouching the water only in 3
small areas when in motionand fulfills the requirements for racing
hydroplanes. At speeds over 50 mph, this craft is usually airborne!
You can build the delightful Weekender for as little as $50.
This compact little sailboat will comfortably carry 2 people. It is only
10 feet long, can be towed on a car-top carrier, and is easily built in
a single weekend. Don't leave for the beach without it!
your own vision and mood: sail as free as the wind in the Midday
Moon or Weekender ; or blast the waves in the
Surf Dart .
