Project 8

Finally got her out for her maiden voyage after about 250 hours of work. She sailed beautifully. In addition to the gaff sloop being a longer, lower rig than the spritsail, I added 50 pounds of lead to the spare, plywood centerboard that came with the boat. She was very stable and did well in light and moderate air. I have a spinnaker that should fit, but I haven't tried it yet.
