This last issue of WOODEN BOAT MAGAZINE had a piece on a boat of almost identical dimensions, lines, and type.
With what I have learned over the past month or so of sailing WHISP, I am even more interested in seeing this idea become a reality.
This excitement has spilled over into the project that is the remodel of WANEESHEE, my Bristol 27, and I have recently made some real progress on her interior adjustments. It's exciting to see the progress and it makes me happy to think about the occupation of the remaining projects to keep me busy thru out the winter.
I intend to finish sewing the jib for the skiff, though I believe that using it, and the rudder will be something I only due when another person is aboard, or in light air on mild days. The addition line handling would make it a bit awkward by myself, and steering really is dead simple with the oars.
