Ok…so its not my big boat…but I started building this little boat a few weeks ago…just to get me moving again…and I am enjoying this one…and the goal is to build this one…be done in a few weeks…and then I can sail it while I build the weekender…

DOnt I have a cool wife?!!! She actually supported my rationale of doing this quick little boat…

its called a PD RACER (puddle duck)

Check out www.pdracer.com

There is a whole little community out there——AND YOU COULD BUILD THIS TOO…

Remember to trim the jib so the tell tales just hit 45° so’s you can sail into the wind… Have fun and a long broad reach…
Love to sail.
