A new boat

One year of posting nothing new here is quite enough.

Let me show you the last boat I built.
It’s a “14 foot sail & row” as discribed by John Gardner in his book Classic small craft you can build.

A post about the first to be built was published here in 2011: Building of Bertha.
The recently built is largely documented on the dedicated pages called the Berthas Blog.
Scroll way back down to the beginning.

The new boat behaves on the water exactly the same as the first one, no wonder it’s the same boat, a tad faster maybe. From a distance even I can’t tell the difference which’ boat ‘is’ the newer or the older one.
With the alternative balanced lugsail however things change: it’s the same girl but in a new dress and it suits her just fine. Als if it were meant to be.
