I just ran across this and thought that it was extremely informative. It made me think a lot and killed some myths I had heard and believed about how long you could survive in cold water.

Strike 18 trimaran by Woods Designs tacking in a small cove at the HPCC in Lake Havasu. I didn't see the windsurfer until I had tacked. Build your own from plans by Woods Designs.


You may know about this publication. If not. Spend 30 min. The format, (the way it works) is user friendly. You can expand the page size with a dial, flip pages, wow. Of course the subject matter is what I am obsessing on at the moment..... proa's and sailing canoes. I think this is the second( ?) issue... in this format.

I just wanted to let your readers know about the wooden boat festival that we are running for the second time on 15th of April at the Mordialloc Sailing Club, Melbourne, Australia. Our first one last year was a great success even though the wind was so strong we did not make it onto the water. We are hoping for this years to be bigger and better. Information on the festival is on our website. Online registration is available as well as on the day.

Here is a new - to me, at least - product that seems both functional and reasonably priced. 

Made in USA too.


This is a slide presentation showing you just one of the many projects we're working on at the Northwest School of Wooden Boatbuilding here on the Olympic Peninsula. One of our volunteers, Karen Gale, put the presentation together for us.

Crazy Steve has gone crazy making paddles. He's having so much fun that he can't stop. They are real works of art. His wife Leena gathered a bunch of pictures showing how he does it. We've found that the "Greenland" style are the best and he makes 'um where they don't drip on you, weigh about 25 ounces for an eight footer and are strong enough so even I don't break 'um.
