Tjalk - Sailing Dutch barge
Anybody familiar about sailing Dutch barge on this site. I love the look of them but would like to know more about them.
I am considering of maybe building a sailing Dutch Barge in the 30 foot long X 12 foot beam. Mainly for cruising around the great loop, the intercoastal water ways and some jump in the Bahamas and Cuba.
Would like to know if anybody is familiar with the design of such weird looking sailboat, Tjalk.
Seams like a good option for livebility compared to a catamaran in the same lenght.
