Summer Breeze

Hi folks

From sunny Queensland in Australia.

Thanks for a great site on boatbuilding.

Recently I have been building a Summer Breeze skiff by David Beede. Good project for woodworkers. When I have some more pics of us sailing I can send a cd-rom with a few photos and a brief description.

Below is a Pic of our SB called Little Ship. Sail and oars only.

First launch and rowing.Originally all varnish but painted with yellow enamel later.I was at the oars sitting on a small ice box.I have made a lower rowing seat now that is moveable when sailing. In a couple of weeks we are planning to have our first sail.

Trial rig with poly sail. Should work ok. Very quick to make. Our later pics are with a digital camera.
