Thanks for the compliment. Since those pictures I have sailed extensively here in the Gulf of mexico! Yesterday We sailed 2 of us( I weight 190lbs and my female companion was 6 ft. 180. We got out and the wind went to 17knots with short 3 ft. waves.
She was on the floor in the rear and I was mid ships to front sailing with the push pull tiller and a 40 inch tiller extension. We kicked the winds !@$$# stayed dry and even during gusts never felt unstable!
Paddle stowage on OzRacer sailboat. Simple plywood homebuilt boat.
Great design on this boat, thanks! I’ll take another picture or 2 to show you how I stored a paddle and small anchor. Also I replaced the rope on the top of the center board with shock cord and made a hook out of a pad eye so we can hold the board down but still have some flexibility when we hit shallow water. I even made a simply (Fred flintstone looking ) wheels that have a small spine that fits into the center board slot.
One last thing…We had a weird wind event here with a 91 mph 2 minute long gust! I woke up and found “breezy” 40 feet away against a concrete building support. Popped a hole in the side tank area of the hull (that I didn’t see) I went out sailing sailed for 1.5 hours came back in and decided to open the hatches on the side tanks and front tank. Well….. the one tank was 3/4 full of water! amazing it sailed so well.
