Glad you like the little boat. It should
indeed be a simple project, with tinkering potential. A windsurfer mast
is almost certainly not stiff enough. They are designed for one person
hanging maybe 750mm/30" to windward. Tenderarry is designed for the same
weight 2 m to windward. It will also have a wing mast. a) because
it is more user friendly than the pocket luff and b) because the 18m version
will have one and the little boat is a test bed for the big one.
Order a set of plans and call it what you
like! The owner has named it tenderarry, so that is what it is.
However, he is on this list so maybe you will change his mind.
by this project Rob has just mentioned today in the
thread. It will be a nice simple building project for
beginners like me, or
the ones who do not have much time, or other
For the sail I propose a windsurfer mast and rig, these
with areas up to 7-8m. And you can have 2 or 3 different ones
depending on wind conditions.
My proposal for the name:
enthousiarry, like the corresponding french
"kid cat" enthousiaste 3.10,
made of ply (see www.enthousiaste.com,
would be a boat which would allow tinkering with with low
consequences, so maybe also Tinkerarry would fit ;-)
bye to all
