Need some encouragement for home builders to spend time, money and effort to build and race their homebuilt boats. Just a thought.
The Star 45 class has done this.... offering an award to the most finely-crafted build.

Our problem in the M-Class is different. It seems as though we can't settle on even having a Nationals. After that's established, maybe then we can add in extra specialty trophies.

To encourage home-built boats, I've offered one of my moulds free to use by my local club. Skilled craftsmen can use them, Who wouldn't want a boat for the price of materials. The mould is a relitively current design and would be really quick atleast where I sail.
