    I was wondering if there is any interest in an easy to build, performance microcruiser. 12' long and six foot beam. Main sail with a tiny bow sprit, little jib for light air and a chute for off the wind. Ideally, it would be for adventure races, like the everglades challenge, texas 200, etc... could accommodate two down below. Also could do other races coastal or protected bay. A down or up or both chesapeake race. Long island sound race. Intercoastal waterway challenge race, etc.... I'm attaching a drawing for review and feedback. [​IMG]

    You won't get more help from posting this twice.

    12 foot displacement boat - 200 mile races - you'd be out there all year wouldn't you?

    Depending upon all the other design features, possibly not quite as bad as a PDR.

    But almost, just guessing at what the hull shape is.
