    This Micro Cruiser is heavy duty, don't be fooled by it's compact size, this boy is a true cruiser....
    Junk rigged, safe and strong, he will go anywhere, lightweight and compact he will go down any highway.....

    Micro cruising on a shoestring, Proa Make O'Break from Balkan Shipyards.

    Rael you did an excellent job. Probably most users here don't know how difficult it is in certain parts of europe to get on the water with a boat you can cartop... with european cars that certainly are not Forf F150 dimensions...

    Europe is small, overcrowded and congested.... Small wheels are the way to go, motorbikes are even better....... Many rules and regulations......... gotta fly low unders many radars........... Small car+small boat+lightweight+no engine=no registration, no hassle, take anywhere, sail anytime.
    Good point, Thanks, point taken.

    Ha Ha.... Aim a camera at my first mate and you will be sorry........ Jenia hates the things! She believes in the quiet small town life she grew up in, the old cobblestone road, the tiny workshops, the sounds of wooden mallets pounding chisels as they cut into hard Balkan wood....... High up in the mountains, a Town of woodcarvers that can't swim, a small shy community that kept to itself.....
    Then I showed up and put her on a boat..... She will forgive me for that...... But I wouldn't aim a camera at her!!!!!
    I'm not a great fisherman, I even don't know if I should laugh or cry when I do catch a fish..... I love eating fish, and fresh catch is so much better! Sailing is everything to me, fishing is just something I leave for others to deal with........
    Though a day will come, with a bigger proa, on longer sails, with tighter budgets...... Till then I will focus on sailing.....
    Yea good first mate! you're right on that one.
    Thanks.
