5 new models planned for 2013......each hopefully will provide the same opportunity.

I think I have seen pictures of the boat you are working on. Should be something to get excited about! My concern for me at least is the size. 1 meter boats are a lot to transport for many of us, and a 54" boat will present an even greater challenge. What will the draft be on the boat? Storage could be an issue at some point. I can make a place for a boat such as yours if it is the one we chatted about last month.

You may recall when we last talked, we had moved inland to Temecula and deep water sailing is not as accessible as it was when living in Orange County. Thus my question on how much water depth the boat will require.

How about posting a few pictures so others can get a look at your work! I don't know how many here know of your work, so a few pictures might generate some interest for you.

I am of course interested and would like to have more information. As you know I like the Sprinta, but if the boat you are building is the one I have seen photos of, I certainly would be leaning toward your boat over the Sprinta. Shipping it would have to be less than getting a Sprinta from Germany!

Looking forward to seeing some pictures and learning more about this and the other boats. What is your target for production?

Definitely building is part most skip nowdays n when something breaksdown most folks don't have a clue how to fix .. just throw money at it.
