I thought I would note here that I had a series of injuries (knee and arms) over the 5 years since beginning these boats. Am better now and hope to finish the Southwind 15 this year. I can likely only do one and feel its the better boat for me.
Almost all panels were cut for both boats a few years ago, so have some momentum going. Had to shut down my furniture building shop unfortunately, but am getting a workspace together.
Should eventually have a nice efficient boat to paddle!
