Ray Kendrick building his trimaran.

with one comment

As time goes I had found many fantastic sailboat project web pages and I would like to introduce them for you. This is awesome when man can make his dream come thru, and this time the dream is hand-build sailboat. I hadn`t watch if there any sailboat projects on youtube yet, this will be the next step for me:)

I will start with my favorites, of course.

Science need to be an open-source thing.

You can`t be the best if you learn from average.
