Yankee is not going to go down easy. She has two seasons of successful results after her rig, winch and sails were upgraded. She is sailing in proper trim and the helmsman will not be trifeled with.

Heard the owner had to put an extension on his mantle. Lol

With your building skills, I’m sure your Enterprise will be a fair match for her. Looking forward to seeing them spar.

Enterprise Build


Sanded, Faired and initial carbon fiber cloth and resin. Project going well. It's been snowing here for the past 9 days. Nice incentive to stay warm in the workshop/boat shop.
