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
