Picaroon - a Labor of many moons will finally hit the water this summer

by Don Boufford
(Picton Ont. Canada)

I think that this Sam Rabl designed 21 footer has very nice lines and likely even more so in the water.

The story goes that Sams brother or uncle sailed a Picaroon from the Gulf near Texas heading for Cuba.

Apparently he hit a very strong weather area and ended up somewhere near Africa but survived the storms.

I have taken too long finishing this boat - too many cars and boats- so I have begun to jettison items and now see much more of my Picaroon and will launch this summer.

Don't beat yourself up Don, plenty others out there to do that.

The point is you have now realised which project is more important and have homed in on it [sort of]

Enjoy it, don't rush it and take everything you can out of it.

All the best and when you're floating about one balmy evening you will pat yourself on the back [cos nobody else will] and know that it was all worth it.

Good luck

Return to Your Wooden Boat Projects...

While the original system worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or posting new photographs etc.

That is why I have introduced the new Your Pages.

This is new ‘Community’ platform is for 2018.

It is designed to put you in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as and when you wish to.

There is also a forum where you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in the conversations.
So, please come on over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
