Part of the idea is that all the stuff that fits in the PDRacer – the mast, centreboard, rudder, rudderbox, sail and boom will also fit the Goose.
This might just allow someone to have two hulls and one set of other gear so they can go sailing in the simple and light and throwaround on the waterable PDRacer, or if they want a more lazy sail with a friend and perhaps a picnic they can use the PDGoose hull instead.
Anyway Jim Post has gotten his PDGoose hull just about done and has made some nice changes. I like the way he has integrated a thwart with the centrecase and also made a nice splashboard arrangement.
Anyway … more pictures of the Goose are here – all the finished ones are Jim’s boat.
One of the nice confirmatory things was the hull weight. A nice 120 lbs (55kg) for the hull. Right on the average boatweights for Antipodean craft of 8 to 10lbs per foot.
