In this episode I clear out space in my garage and discuss my plans to build a 14’ mini-cruiser capable of crossing oceans.

Although I have several customizations in mind, the basis of the boat design will be the plans for the Tenten 425 Version 2 designed by Jerome Delaunay. Some exciting features of the design I look forward to making build videos about:
Trim-tab self steering
Custom DIY waterproof round hatch
Oval doghouse featuring seated interior steering position with 360° visibility
Interior tiller/whipstaff steering system in addition to external tiller
Sheets/other control lines on deck and in the cabin for foul weather sailing
Retractable bowsprit
Spinning mast to furl mainsail
Ventilation system, leak-proof through a 360° roll

In this episode I begin work on the jig which will hold the boat and help form its shape as it’s being built. I also discuss another feature I’m excited to incorporate into the design, a cockpit with no footwell. This boat is not being built for the cocktail party, it’s being built to cross oceans.
