A SMALL BOAT, TO SMALL FOR LONG VOYAGES IN COLD WATER

When I lived on Tjörn island on the west coast I buildt this boat. She was a trhee quarter scale model of a 5.4 meter boat Matt Layden had helped me to draw. As work progressed and circumstances changed I planned to do a long voyage in her, but sailing her in Sweden, in October and November with plenty of clothes made me realise that she was to small and I to bulky.
When building her I had many bright ideas like having a jib-spar to take upp compression that let me have the shrouds forevard of the mast so that I could let out the boom about 120 degrees running downwind. It was also good training to make a compact boat. Experience like these and outhers helps me with my next boat.
