7. Test flight.

It is appropriate that this is boat 13. Never quite getting an off shore breeze it went back and forth from the beach a number of times. Picture 1 is a good example of the sort of spot where a boat is constructed. Pictures 5, 6 and 7 show the speed of this boat on the water and a test sail from the breakwater to the other side of Yarra Bay. The hull was a length of channeled pine with a cross beam of pine mitered into it with a pocket knife. A plastic bag sail on a stick frame with a cut plastic rudder and some foam outriggers. Picture 6 shows it with the additional ALDI bag sail.
