Just a quick question or two.....
I have been contemplating various designs for my next boat and I've (almost) made up my mind for it to be the 4 strake CY for no other reason other than I prefer the look of it to the 7 strake.
Does anybody have a rough idea as to the timber list? Just a rough idea, don't need it down the the last length but I'm looking to get an idea of what it'll cost to build.
I've built a stitch and tape Selway Fisher Highlander 11 (if you're interest you can see pictures on http://www.selway-fisher.com/Highup13.htm
and am sure this project will stretch my skills.
I'm looking for a boat thats stable and safe for myself, wife and 2 young kids to sail. It can be choppy -though I wouldn't knowingly go out with them when rough weather is forecast but need a boat that'll get us back to shore safely. I'd like to to be able to launch/recover the boat easily and being easy to trail would be good as there are some fab sailing grounds the other side of the country about an hours drive away. Will the CY suit? I've been reading here that it's a fab boat....and I love the looks.
Thanks in advance for your advice...
