A boat called Wid Horses, almost finished and will post some pics in progress so everyone can see how it came to be. Thanks to! Started in the spring of 07 and finishing it in the next month or so. Waiting for the snow to melt to get a better outside picture for everyone.

You had me when I saw the mast. Are you going with the sprit rig? Tanbark sails?

Very nice. They have a boat building workshop at the St. Michaels Maritim Museaum near me in MD. My wife keeps asking me if I’d be interested. So far it been a NO. But yours is looking great./

The boat is really looking great. Let us know how the sea trials go. I’m sure you will get a clean sweep.

This will have a Tanabark sail, spirit rigged to keep it looking old with the new! Getting snow here.. like I’m in the South, but mostly ice and rain, just enough to slow it down again.
