Caledonia Yawl Project: Un-shedding the boat

This weekend was the fathers day weekend and south of the border the Junteenth. Although not planned this way it was a good weekend to get the boat out of the shed.

After more than 800 hours of building on evenings and weekends in 2-4 hour blocks. I’d been waiting since October for the COVID restrictions to be relaxed to the point where I could invite 7 or 8 friends to help me lift the boat up and onto the trailer. An extra challenge was that in the intervening 5 years a fig tree had grown to block the way a little.

Big thanks to all my friends and family who have helped me to get to this point. It is not without their support that I have the privilege of being able to take on a project like this.

  1. Congratulations. What a beautifull boat. Thank you for letting us follow your project. Happy sailing 🙂

    1. Thank you, still a bit of work to get her sailing. The rigging needs to be built, that will be an exciting and rewarding challenge.
