All too often, dreams are are unobtainable. My sailing experience has been limited to several years of sailing and racing an
8 foot Sabot as well as crewing in
races a handful of times and a few day trips in boats in the 30 foot range, and
many years of board sailing, starting with a Windsurfer One Design only a
few years after they came out, and
ending up with a Bic Electric Rock which I sailed at the Squamish Spit for about
ten years. The Electric Rock is probably considered very dated now, and fairly
heavy by today's standards, but it was fast. Even though sailing at 30 knots was
fun, my dream was to sail in a boat that I had built. I didn't want to dream "too big"
and set a goal that is unobtainable. I spent a lot of time looking around
and PocketShip seems like an ideal starting point... or it just might be what I've always been looking for. Time will tell! I ordered the plans for the PocketShip on July 6
2009, along with plans for a Wood Duck 10 and an Eastport Pram.
