How about portable boats?

Well, its cold and full of snow here. A couple years ago, I came across the site PortableBoat plans by Ken Simpson's of Arizona.

1-Sheet Wedge

So, I think, just for fun this winter, I may just build the 1 sheet wedge that he has...could be fun to go fishing and go through the canals around here.

His plans comes with tuns of fun options...you can even increase its length for a second occupant. You could row it, use a trolling motor and even create a sail version.

Check his stuff out, he has a lot of neat stuff and he uses a very cheap and proven building methodology. No epoxy here.

I'll keep you updated!

Cheers!

Living the Vendée Globe through The Godforsaken Seas

As the Vendée is in progress, I am also reading one of the best book documenting the 1996 Vendée Globe race.


This not something I would do, for me sailing is about visiting places, and racing is usually in teams, more fun to me.

Regardless, I admire the people that have the guts to do it and the stamina as well.

This is a great book about the process of many people going around the world alone. It is also a book for anyone, no need to understand sailing, everything is very well explained.

Cheers!
