  1. I have begun illustrating my cockpit plans, prior to building them. More details can be found on my blog. http://kingsfoldsailboat.blogspot.com/2016/09/significant-modifications.html and I just added a cockpit top view to go along with this. http://kingsfoldsailboat.blogspot.com/2016/10/more-work-on-self-draining-cockpit-plans.html
  2. Thanks for the encouragement regarding my sanity... Paul's plans (for the fin/rudder upgrade) show a very nice laminated tiller which I may attempt the construction of some winter down the road a ways.
  3. I have been working on Kingsfold for several years now. http://kingsfoldsailboat.blogspot.com/ Since I learned about the Race to Alaska, I made some changes in my plans in order to make the boat safer when I enter next year's race. Those changes include replacing my according-to-the-plans keel and rudder with the fin keel and rudder that PAR designed. Here is a photo of the rudder in process. I am also going to make the cockpit self-draining. Yes, I know it's a small boat with a small cockpit, and I am a bit crazy. I'll keep you posted on my progress.
