Introducing the project
Monday, Jul 19, 2021     sibling,         overview,

What am I doing here?

I’m building a 27 foot sail boat. It is a design by David Tyler. The boat was at first designed according to the needs of Annie Hill. Annie documented the build in her blog. Although Annie’s criteria are quite similar to mine David kindly altered the design at a few points for me. The specifications are:

LOA8,2m
LWL6,8m
Beam3m
Draft0,9m
Displacement3,4t
Ballast1,2t
Sail Area40m²

The big difference to Annie’s design is, that my boat will not have bilge boards but more draft. There will be also more headroom and some changes to the layout so that I can live more comfortably with my 1,85m. I will try to document the costs and the process here as good as possible.
