Here are some pics of the project. At this point, I am almost done with the hull construction (1 needs seats and mast partner and another needs centerboard trunk installed). Should be sailing with the local kids on Sunday afternoons by the end of the month.

Makes me want to make a visit just to see how your project is doing! :D

I am finally updating this thread: the boats are finished, painted, and in use! We are currently teaching the kids sailing on Sunday afternoons. During the upcoming school break we will add some days, and also give some new kids a chance to learn. Rather than uploading pics, I will post a link to a slide show on Youtube of the boats under construction and under sail.

The youth sailing program was named in honor of Bill Pool, one of the two founders of the One Candle Schoolhouse. This has since grown and become the Bright Lights Community Learning Initiatives, Inc. (non-profit).

Thanks for the moral support! Now, on to the trimaran project!
