    I finally finished my stretched Colvin Witch build some months back. Haven't launched yet, that'll probably be in September/October, but the boat is complete.

    I made my own masts & sewed my own sails as well as building the hull and doing the fitout.

    For anyone as unobservant as me, the website is now Mimi Jane http://mimijane.ca/ (it's in M&M's profile, but I'm a newbie and didn't notice it there until after finding it by wading through several older versions via wayback machine).

    It's been a long time... Our project has been been delayed from our original plan (4 year build ? :) :) ), but it's still moving along. We are launching our boat May 30th, 2022, after 17 years since the keel was laid. For up to date info Murielle is posting most often on her facebook page: Dundee Mimi Jane https://www.facebook.com/DundeeMimiJane website is www.mimijane.ca

    Wow! That is great news, thanks for updating. Congratulations for what Daniel so rightly called "splendid construction" all those years ago! I wish you "fair winds and following seas" for wherever you travel.

    Best wishes - Brian
