Hi everyone

After reading this forum for a couple of days, I realised I needed to register, fast. Lots of fantastic advice here, both from Boatmik and the rest of you. I am impressed.

A few words about me:
I have dubbed myself “the world’s slowest boatbuilder”. I have Michaels plans for both Beth and GIS, but I am still working on my first project, Oughtred’s “MacGregor” sailing canoe – which I have chosen to build by strip-planking rather than Oughtred’s model of lapstraking.
I have been doing that for two summers (!) in between family things and taking care of the summer house, which takes some working time.

Michaels advice on lug sails are a big help on my work on the MacGregor. You make a good case for this old-fashioned and simple, but efficient rig. I also like to commend you on your building advice with the plans. Clear and very easy to follow, even for us non-English speakers. I have been writing professionally (in Swedish) and I do appreciate good written instructions. It is a truly difficult job to write easily understood instructions!

Enough now. I’ll be coming back with more questions and comments.
But as a parting note I found a film of Beth that I have not seen mentioned in this forum (If i missed it, apologies):

a fellow named David Goetz in what looks like Florida or some other warm place

Regards from dark, wintry Stockholm where sailing season is six month’s away
