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.
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
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
